Civic tech in New York City

New York City hosts a thriving civic tech community. The tech sector itself has become a major force in New York City, already home to finance, real estate, and media industries. As a result, the city has birthed a disproportionate number of civic startups. Civic tech in New York takes place inside and in partnership with the massive city government, as well as with activists outside of government. New York also offers strong universities and public institutions across its 5 boroughs and metropolitan area.
