What better way to start your weekend than with some news from your friends at The OpenGov Foundation. First, we're hiring a Press Secretary who will lead our communications. Help us shape and share our story of building 21st century government.
We're also excited to share that we won the Startup Pitch Competition at the Lincoln Initiative's Reboot Conference! The $25,000 prize gets us closer to the efficient, effective and open federal legislative branch we seek.
Finally, in case you missed it, we wrote up the goals and lessons from attending and participating in a community engagement event for the Array of Things urban sensing project in Chicago, IL. Our friends at Smart Chicago ran the event and are collecting public feedback through our open source Madison engagement platform.
About The OpenGov Foundation
OpenGov is a small non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)3 foundation working to open government. That means making it easier for people to access and use as much government information as possible. We believe innovative technology and open data can help deliver democratic governments that listen to citizens, operate efficiently, and solve our shared challenges the smart way.
We believe democracy means everyone should have the chance to be a hands-on contributor.
