Building Tools to Empower the Civic Tech Movement
The civic tech movement is trying to invent the future. It’s a future where every person can contribute to the decisions that affect them, where public services are delivered dynamically, and where collective intelligence fits in the palm of your hand.
But the civic tech movement suffers from inefficiency. Too many smart, well-intentioned people underachieve their potential real-world impact because they don't have access to the people and resources they need to launch their projects successfully.
DemocracyLab is solving this problem by creating an online hub for civic innovation that that will engage stakeholders by using marketplace dynamics to allocate effort, resources, and attention. We're starting by connecting skilled volunteers to tech-for-good projects that need their help.
We're hard at work powering towards an imminent launch. Our team of super-volunteers has been designing and developing our platform for a public launch in the summer of 2018.
