City Innovate Raises $12.4M, Announces Gov Tech Partnership

The company, whose tools help agencies automate workflows, will work with ServiceNow to get such technology into the hands of more public agencies. City Innovate has also raised a Series A funding round.

City Innovate, which sells documentation, analytics and related technology to state and local agencies, has raised $12.4 million in a Series A funding round and struck a new workflow automation deal.

The San Francisco-based firm's funding round was led by SJF Ventures, whose government technology investments also include AI mobility company Waycare and New York-based SeamlessDocs, which was bought by Kofile in 2020 and now goes by GovOS.

ServiceNow, TFJ Capital and Nellore Capital also took part.

“Aligned with our mission focus, we are excited to support City Innovate’s growth journey as they transform government procurement, contracts, grant administration and budgeting workflows,” said Daniel Geballe, managing director at SJF Ventures, in a statement. “The opportunity to deliver lasting, positive impact to government efficiency and service delivery is significant with this technology solution.”

City Innovate also said it is working with ServiceNow to get budgeting, contracting, grants and procurement technology to more public agencies.

They intend to do so by coupling City Innovate’s “document process automation … with ServiceNow’s cutting-edge workflow automation platform,” according to the statement.

“Together, ServiceNow and City Innovate are bringing solutions to market to transform government agency operations, balancing the need for rapid net-new innovation with greater insight and accountability,” said Raj Iyer, global head of public sector at ServiceNow, in the statement. “Our shared goals — to drive impact and enhance the constituent experience — make us ideal partners in improving digital delivery for government services.”
