Scaling Civic Tech
How can we harness technology to promote civic engagement and more responsive government? This report summarizes insights with the intention of advancing a more consistent, collaborative and rigorous fieldwide conversation about sustainability of the civic tech sector. Knight Foundation and The Rita Allen Foundation commissioned this research to develop a more nuanced understanding of civic tech business models. We hope that the findings will be instructive for startups and funders, and that the report promotes a more sophisticated discussion about business models. We are particularly excited to continue working with others to consider and pursue recommendations outlined in the report.
