Five years ago, Government Technology saw something happening: Civic tech was changing. Fueled by new technologies, modern methodologies and a sudden interest from investors, startups were beginning to work more with government. In a space long dominated by incumbents, notorious for complex procurement and implementation cycles, agencies were hungering for something new.
We took note, and launched a list of 100 companies that represented that ecosystem. Now in its fifth year, the GovTech 100 has reached a new level of maturity. A lot has changed. A lot hasn’t.
In terms of the headline-grabbing venture capital world, gov tech has not yet arrived. But it has come a long way.
