Green Smart City (GSC), is one of the new types of cities which integrates eco-concepts
and information technologies. As GSC construction is a resource intensive process,
it requires a large amount of knowledge, information, talent and capital. Thus, setting
up an innovation ecosystem is an astute way to promote the construction of a GSC.
This paper, based on the case study by the Insigma Group, tries to explore the rules
of innovation ecosystem building for the construction of GSCs in China.
