THE CIVSTART DIFFERENCE

CivStart is the only accelerator that focuses on the state and local government market.

We have an ecosystem of public sector decision makers who appreciate and realize the importance of working with and understanding your perspectives and solutions. There are many great accelerators programs, however, we specialize exclusively within the state & local government market.

 

HOW WE ACCOMPLISH OUR GOALS

We guide and accelerate the adoption of cutting-edge technology solutions at the local level by connecting governments, startup companies, and corporate partners to steward good ideas and address the needs of local communities through a technology lens.  We will:

  • Convene Public Sector Officials To Identify Needs and Goals

  • Identify Promising Technologies To Meet Those Needs

  • Spur Government Adoption of Innovative Tech

 

VISION

CivStart’s vision is to create an honest and inclusive ecosystem producing unique and impactful innovations for state & local governments and the communities they serve.
