These #dctech companies made the GovTech100

Government Technology and e.Republic Labs put together a list of the “leading 100 companies focused on government as a customer.”

Looking for the names of hot startups in the civic tech space? Check out the inaugural GovTech100.
On Jan. 20, Government Technology and e.Republic Labs unveiled their list of “leading 100 companies focused on government as a customer.” According to the editors, the list “reflects hundreds of hours of work to identify, verify and qualify companies using publicly available information, media reports and interviews with parties familiar with the market.”
So who made the cut? One hundred companies is a lot, and there are many on the list who are doing cool work to connect citizens to the public sector, to make government transparency easier or to improve government workflow, etc. And some are even doing that from offices right here in the District.
Here are the DMV companies working in the civic tech space that made the list:

  1. FiscalNote: From offices in Metro Center FiscalNote tracks legislation across the U.S. to aid in government transparency.
  2. Maximus: Reston-based Maximus helps governments deliver “essential services” like healthcare and education.
  3. Opower: The Arlington-based company makes software utility companies.
  4. Seabourne: Based near Thomas Circle, this company makes tools for data integration and visualization.
  5. TransparaGov: Working just at the base of Capitol Hill, TransparaGov creates software that makes it easier for governments to be transparent.
