Gabe Klein, author of Start-Up City: Inspiring Private and Public Entrepreneurship, Getting Projects Done & Having Fun, will speak at The Idea Center at Miami-Dade College. According to John Greenfield at StreetsBlog Chicago, Klein’s book is “for city staffers who want to apply start-up-style energy to the public sector, as well as entrepreneurs who want to serve the public good, not just line their pockets.”

Klein was vice-president for Zipcar, then helped launch bikeshare in Washington, D.C., where he was director of the District Department of Transportation. Later he moved to Chicago to lead the city Department of Transportation under Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
