Event description

Description

Civic society and the startup and technology community have a history of uneasy coexistence in the Bay Area.

Much of this comes from the vastly different contexts and cultures they occupy, and use to be effective in their work. What works in startups doesn't work in government, and vice versa.

In this candid, off-the-record conversation, we'll explore just how these cultures are so different, and how the technology industry might start to understand, empathize, and engage with civic society constructively at a broader level.

This isn't a blame-throwing talk. This is a place to understand why this gap exists, and explore ways to bridge it better.
