Celebrating civic innovation [Technical.ly Podcast]

Ahead of this month's "Rise" conference, we check in with a major investor giving small startup cities a boost, a former chief data officer offering advice and an open gov advocate challenging "civic tech" to rethink itself.

A more connected citizenry, a more efficient government, a more distributed network of successful startups.

Those are the lofty, big-picture goals from this month’s Technical.ly Podcast.

Now, all this is really just an appetizer for a main course Technical.ly is serving later this month.


Our Rise conference, held Oct. 22-24 in Philadelphia, will convene leaders in civic innovation from across the Northeast. In this month’s podcast, we get the scoop on how the event will empower attendees to make their communities better.

All that, some sweet tunes and this month’s Delaware-themed “Technical.ly TIL.”
