About coUrbanize

coUrbanize is an online community engagement firm that specializes in building support for real estate and planning projects through equitable and meaningful engagement.

Our platform gives people a way to share their feedback and have a voice in a real estate development or planning process without having to go to a meeting – by simply posting a comment online or texting in their ideas — and having a two-way dialogue with the project team. By lowering the bar to civic engagement, coUrbanize enables our customers to reach constituents whose voices have historically gone unheard.

coUrbanize was built to give historically-excluded people the access needed to influence the future of their communities. We want to build a team as diverse as the communities that use our platform.
