Growing up in Beijing, China, I saw the cityscape transition from courtyards to high-rise buildings. I’ve since lived in different cities, each with unique character: Phoenix, Rotterdam, Frankfurt, Tripoli, and now Helsinki, Finland, as Chief Innovation Officer for KONE. Our mission to improve the flow of urban life is close to my heart.

Over 50% of people live in urban areas today, and around 200,000 people move into cities every day. In addition to urbanization, sustainability and technology drive the development of smart cities. To accommodate the growing number of people while slowing down climate change, we need to adopt smarter, scalable solutions. Technology enables us to solve these challenges and helps make cities more livable and responsive.
