In 2016, Mayor Sam Liccardo announced a bold vision to make San Jose the most innovative city in America by 2020. Civic technology gives cities the ability to bring communities together, make government more efficient, and improve service delivery. Too often, however, city hall can feel like a black hole and cumbersome to work with. With Pitch Day, we are re-inventing the way civic tech vendors can interact with City Hall by streamlining the process.
Here's how it works: Sign up for a pitch day slot. Submit your materials to us before the meeting. We'll review your materials before your pitch to make our time more productive. We'll invite multiple City stakeholders to your pitch to facilitate a more productive conversation and streamline potential hand-offs. Each quarter we hope use this process and leverage our innovative demonstration policy and enter into working partnerships with at least two to three new civic vendors. We hope this process will streamline your interaction with City Hall and make your experience positive, productive, and conclusive.
So join us! We're open for business. Sign up below.
