The global population is constantly growing, not least in the cities: Each week, three million people move from the countryside to cities around the world.
The urban challenge can seem overwhelming, but it is also an opportunity for companies with sustainability and innovation in their DNA: How do we create livable solutions for tomorrow’s societies?
BLOXHUB aspires to bridge architecture, design, construction and digitization and to connect companies, researchers and organizations to help create solutions for a good city life and ultimately reach the UN Development Goal 11: to make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. By creating an eco-system of stakeholders within urbanization, we provide what we believe is the best conditions for connecting, sharing and scaling businesses that create cities for people.
BLOXHUB was founded on June 3, 2016, by Realdania, the City of Copenhagen and the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs. It is a non profit member association for companies, research institutions, organizations and municipalities.
The BLOXHUB association is agile and comprises a board, a secretariat and two categories of membership: the once who live here and the community members.
