from their site:

Startup Cities Institute (SCI) is a non-profit research organization that studies the use of startup communities for legal and political reform. These special governance zones, called Startup Cities, are small and highly autonomous jurisdictions established within pre-existing nations. Governments use Startup Cities to create inclusive economic growth, combat corruption and insecurity, and to test public policy innovations in public services, transparency, and environmental stewardship. SCI is a project of Universidad Francisco Marroquín in Guatemala City.
