Before co-founding Neighborly, Wilson studied cities, technology and real estate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While there, he consulted for several domestic and international city governments on use of digital technology and authored a thesis on using Web-based technologies to deepen civic engagement. As an undergraduate, he founded Luminopolis, a civic software agency.
