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.

Civic tech is about more than just shining a light on city hall.

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.
