A Q&A with the CEO of Popuphood, which brings cities and developers together to help retailers occupy once vacant spaces.
Happy to share our CEO Sarah R Filley's contributions to the "Future of Cities" Podcast hosted by Sidewalk Labs! This episode discusses vacant storefronts and picks up on our threads of innovation, flexibility, and the functions of cities.
"Vacant storefronts have become pervasive on our city streets. How did we get here? And how can we help retailers, and community spaces, thrive? In this episode of our "City of the Future" podcast, we explore innovations that could help address the retail crisis — and embed flexibility and vibrancy into our cities' ground floors. This episode includes Abigail Ellman of the Cooper Square Committee, Isaiah Michael, Parul Patel of Gem Spa, Mark Pilkington, Sarah Filley of Popuphood, Chase Clark, and Sidewalk Labs' Carrie Denning Jackson."
