Civic Disrupt: Exploring Opportunities Between Startups and the Public Sector

How can we redesign public services to better work for communities? And how can entrepreneurs actively participate in this movement? This is a significant local, national and global market opportunity, and Colorado is leading the way on many fronts.

Digital disruption is the new normal for companies that continue to thrive and reinvent themselves in a global terrain marked with constant shift and movement. It is clear the future belongs to those organizations that not only embrace the change but champion the opportunities to pioneer the future. This leaves the public sector in a critical position to catch up with the pace of disruption in order to deliver critical resources to its citizens.

In this digital age, people are more connected to their environment and community than ever before, creating sizable market demand for better access to government services, smarter cities, transportation and cybersecurity.

Through this panel discussion, we will explore Colorado’s own civic disruption through the lens of both the public sector and private industry, which collectively are driving new solutions to complex challenges.

This panel is hosted by the Colorado Innovation Network (COIN), a division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. COIN advances connections in the global innovation ecosystem whereby Colorado is recognized as the most innovative state in the nation. Learn more at www.coloradoinnovationnetwork.com.
