Phoenix is the capital in Arizona and the fifth-most populous city in the United States with 1,680,992 inhabitants. 

The Partnership for Economic Innovation, together with the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, Maricopa Association of Governments, Arizona State University and the Institute for Digital Progress, launched Greater Phoenix’s Smart Region Consortium, known as The Connective. Their approach aims to help cities adopt smart city technology in a reverse-engineered way - The Connective aims to gather input from residents in the Phoenix region to discover how technology can be used to meet their needs. 

In addition, the Center for Smart Cities and Regions from the Arizona State University has developed educational programme around smart and connected cities. The Smart City Academy supports individuals and organisations to develop, implement and manage smart city endeavors effectively.

For Phoenix, the chance to empower citizens with knowledge and resources is key to developing an intelligent city for the future.
