On December 5th, the Financial Times and Citi held their inaugural Ingenuity Awards in NYC. This year’s theme, “Urban Ideas in Action,” recognized individuals and organizations that have developed innovative solutions to urban challenges in the fields of education, healthcare, energy and infrastructure.
