This press release comes from our friends at CivStart. CivStart’s application opened on March 1 for a highly-selective and unique two-year startup acceleration program.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 1, 2021) – Startups can now apply for CivStart’s two-year long acceleration program, which features a wide range of benefits and a unique approach to a growing state and local government technology market. Now in its third year, the program has featured a wide range of high-impact and high-growth startups focused on helping local governments serve their residents. Examples include WhyLine, CitizenLab, CityGrows, Pigeonly, and Near Space Labs.
“CivStart’s startups generally have an established product, and usually at least one client before we start working with them,” explained Anthony Jamison, Co-founder and CEO at CivStart, “our program is designed to help these companies gain the language, understanding, and contacts to navigate the incredibly large, but extremely challenging state and local government market.”
CivStart’s application will be open until April 30th. Interested startups should apply at civstart.org/startups.
