"Why reinvent the wheel when others have gone and done things before us? The Civic Tech Field Guide has been a fantastic source of inspiration and a great tool to support collaborations. As we set out to build in Myanmar, we came across the Sinar Project in Malaysia, who had an existing backend and helped us get up and running in a matter of days. Major win for all of us!"

Victoire Rio

Social Impact Director, Phandeeyar: Myanmar Innovation Lab

"The Civic Tech Field Guide is the best and most up-to-date resource that offers a comprehensive taxonomy of the emerging field of civic tech. When I need a tool, or wonder "Has someone ever done that?", I go to the guide and find something new."

Catherine D'Ignazio
