  3. Podcast: Digital Community Engagement Strategies
July 6, 2020

Listen to Karin discuss how she built coUrbanize into a must-have online tool that increases both engagement and positive outcomes for developers and local communities by leveraging digital community engagement.

On this episode I’m speaking with Karin Brandt, CEO and founder of coUrbanize. An urban planner by trade, Karin launched the coUrbanize platform to power more effective community engagement throughout the planning and development process.

Karin holds a master’s degree in city planning from MIT and began her career in urban development at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, where she co-edited Infrastructure and Land Policies. In 2018, she was selected as one of Real Estate Forum’s 50 Under 40 in Commercial Real Estate in 2018.

A note to listeners: our interview with Karin was conducted pre-Covid-19 and pre-Anti-Racism protests across the globe.
