The Tech Companies Helping Government Meet Its Mission

The fourth annual GovTech 100 list will be released this week.

by / January 8, 2019

This week's release of the 2019 GovTech 100 list, compiled and published by Government Technology, marks the maturation of what began four years ago as a way to recognize companies founded to solve problems unique to the public sector.

Together, GovTech 100 companies represent a growing portfolio of scalable, digital solutions addressing the tough, complicated problems that governments face -- from health care and public finance to urban planning and public safety.

On this episode of "Go Public," we hear from the analysts who developed this year’s list, a pair of founders of GovTech 100 companies, and a venture capitalist about the market's dynamics and what they mean for governments.
