Shaun Abrahamson
Founder, Urban.us

Between the MIT Engineering degree and the MBA from the Berlin School of Creative Leadership, it's hard not to be impressed by Shaun. That unique combination of left and right brain is exactly why we've dog-eared so many pages of Crowdstorm, Shaun's book that outlines how to use large online networks to find and evaluate ideas. Shaun is a problem solver, currently committed to helping cities do the same with his latest venture Urban.us, which helps startups that make cities smart in areas like sustainability, mobility, governance and resilience. Sessions with Shaun will go toward raising money for the Natural Resources Defense Council.
