DemocracyLab is building an online hub for civic innovation that uses marketplace dynamics to allocate effort, resources, and attention. Our initial product seeks to optimize the connection between skilled volunteers and technology-for-good projects. Later offerings will focus on the needs of donors, citizens, and institutions.
Our platform isn't quite ready for the world, but you're welcome to give it a try.
We're launching a proof of concept in Seattle, WA this summer. We'd love to get your feedback as we iterate and improve our platform!
We believe the result of our work will be an increase in participation, collaboration and transparency within the civic tech movement, and the evolution of new civic innovations capable of addressing society’s significant challenges.
