(1) CIV City Cases: Discover and Submit your Case  As part of our research into City Venture, we present a variety of cases, each devoted to a single city. These describe, in a standard format, the experience of each city in developing its venture ecosystem, with special attention to the strengths and weaknesses, key factors and institutions that affect the city’s success. We offer you to participate by submitting your own City Case.
