Your Technology Could Transform our Cities
Civic I/O mayors are constantly seeking creative solutions to real, pressing civic challenges. We provide those mayors and companies a place to uncover and design solutions together. The goal isn’t disruption but evolution — finding products and services that are a win-win for both cities and startups. We also help companies and mayors continue their collaboration after the competition has ended, working with both to facilitate the relationships necessary to develop tailored, stress-tested solutions for real-world cities.
Introduce Civic I/O mayors to your company, product, technology, or idea in this unique pitch competition that occurs during our annual summit.
Pitch your idea to a panel of the country’s foremost mayors and industry experts for a chance to win up to $10,000.
Gain exposure to 20+ mayors from across the country while being an integral part of addressing civic challenges.
The winner will also have the opportunity to pitch at the 2019 US Conference of Mayors Annual Meeting, where over 600 Mayors will be present.
APPLICATIONS WILL OPEN IN JANUARY 2019.
