STEPHEN CAINES \ SAN JOSE, CA
CivStart continues to play a vital role in government innovation by serving as an applied incubator for the next generation of GovTech companies. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the other motivated and agile local government leaders in their larger community.
NEIL SATRA \ SOCIETAL
The government leaders you meet at this conference are self-selected innovators and early adopters. We walked away with a couple of mutual referral partnerships with other startups, and knowledge about a new way to speed up procurement. Perhaps most importantly, l made friends with other founders who understand the unique challenges and opportunities in the GovTech community.
