Vetted, Sustainable, Innovative Solutions

CivStart and our board of advisors choose our startups through a rigorous three-stage selection process involving input from our selection committee of experts and current and former public-sector officials.

Our startups offer a wide range of solutions to the challenges faced by local governments and the communities they serve. They participate in CivStart's two-year program and gain valuable product feedback and refinements, knowledge of how to navigate the complex local government market, and direct feedback and exposure to local leaders in innovation.
