SXSW Interactive 2013

The Civic Startup Space

As cities are becoming increasingly open and responsive to technological innovation, more entrepreneurs are considering the business opportunities presented by this trend. The panelists will speak from their experience in the space working for concept and early stage funders, at a growing startup, and for a city that leverages technology to enhance its citizen services. This conversation will be valuable to anyone who is interested in this emerging sector, is considering starting a company in the civic space, or who cares about how technology can help their home town.
