"[T]he technology infrastructure that government departments use to do their internal work or deliver services to their "customers" ie. citizens. Around here, we like to say govtech is the "operating system" of government."
- Ron Bouganim, Founder and Managing Partner of the Govtech Fund
"A new wave of technology is changing the way our countries – and local and
federal governments as well as arms-length agencies – collect taxes, deliver
services, distribute welfare, maintain security and much more. In time, and perhaps
a surprisingly short time, the whole way the state engages with its citizens will
be different. Driving this change is the rise of GovTech, new technologies applied
to public services and specifically designed for government purposes."
