This issue of The Journal of Public Space explores the relationship between public space and entrepreneurship. The ideas developed during the Habitat III Conference in Quito, when considering: how to implement the ambitious aims of the New Urban Agenda in context of the current socio-economic realities and to reach a fairer share of the benefits brought by urbanisation? In December 2017, the organisation of the 10th Conference of the International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU) at the Chinese University of Hong Kong offered an opportunity to discuss such questions with international scholars and professionals. The papers in this special issue originated from this conference and later submissions to The Journal of Public Space.
