Open innovation programs for governments and public institutions
Public sector innovation is a shared responsibility amongst public and private organizations. Governments should be the cornerstone for effective collaboration, liaising with academia, the private sector, and other relevant institutions.
We bring govtech startups closer to public institutions, accelerating the experimentation and scaling of new public sector digital solutions.
