It’s an urban moment. Communities across the country are being changed and improved in new ways with new thinking.
That is why, in 2014, Technical.ly launched Rise, a two-day conference focused on civic innovation and the future of cities.
Last year we had over 100 participants and more than 35 speakers from all across Technical.ly’s five markets (Philadelphia, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Delaware and D.C.) and more. It was a lively gathering of civil servants, technologists and creative professionals looking for new ways to lift up where they live. Check out our full Rise 2014 recap here.
And, because it was so successful, we’re bringing it back!
Join us Dec. 3-4 in Philadelphia to hear from a variety of leaders in civic tech. You’ll be able to share best practices and learn new ways to make a difference in your community. This year the focus is “The Future of City” and how we get there.
Civil servants, economic development officials and community leaders interested in how public-private partnerships are being shaped through the web, IT processes and the creative economy are encouraged to attend. Walk out of this conference with the tools to become a leader back home.
