Bigbelly wants to transform its solar-powered trash cans into digital hubs offering Wi-Fi access, advertising, and data-collecting sensors. (Oh, and garbage receptacles, too.) A new case study by Mitchell Weiss explores the challenges of a bold strategy pivot.Bigbelly solar-powered trash cans have been street corner fixtures in Philadelphia, Boston, New York, and other cities around the world for the past decade-providing a self-compacting solution to keep streets clean.
Last year, however, the Massachusetts-based company's CEO shared plans to change its business model from selling a product-waste and recycling stations-to selling a subscription-based service that could include Wi-Fi access, sensors, and digital advertising. Government is a giant customer. They buy a lot of stuff" Harvard Business School professor Mitchell Weiss explores this strategy pivot in a new case on Bigbelly, co-written with case researcher Christine Snively, that looks at the implications for technology companies entering the "smart cities" field. "I wanted to explore the opportunities and challenges of selling to government in a company that is moving from selling hardware in big chunks to selling software as a service," says Weiss, the MBA Class of 1961 Senior Lecturer of Business Administration.

Professor Mitchell Weiss
Senior Lecturer of Business Administration Amidst all the hand-wringing and head scratching at stagnant government, there is, if you look to see it, also a new wave of energy. Leaders within private startups and public agencies, in this country and abroad, and for every level of government, are inventing new ways of transforming perhaps our oldest industry. They are partnering to do the people's work, more flexibly, faster, and more openly. Mitch Weiss will describe this surge of public entrepreneurship, its opportunities, its strategies, and some of its challenges for business and government leaders. He will pull lessons from his own experience founding startups within government, including the country's first Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics; Boston's Innovation District; and the One Fund Boston, which was established less than 24 hours after the Boston Marathon Bombings and channeled more than $60 million to survivors and the families of the victims in just 75 days. He will also draw from new efforts at public entrepreneurship across the country and around the globe, ranging from bike-share in Paris to biometrics in India. And he will share reflections from his new elective course at Harvard Business School and what it might mean for all of us if a new generation of MBA's take the tools of public entrepreneurship into technology companies, venture firms, and government itself.
