Good Friday.

It's been a while right.  Well don't become too complacent.  We are planning a whole list of events starting later this month.  Assembling an all-start cast of presenters, instructors, mentors and coaches.  Some will events will be in VA and some will be executed at new venues in DC.

  • Funding
  • Lean Startup form the Beginning
  • Lean Startup Principles for Development, Design and UX
  • Coaching
  • Pitching Workshops
  • A whole lot more

Some interesting sponsors will soon be announced as well.  They are very interested in helping our members successfully move ahead with their ventures.

Shared Space initiative is still on track.  Just spoke with a local jurisdiction that is very interested in bringing us to their nick of the woods.  We may be doing some pilot instructional courses with another established Shared Space community.  You will see other pilots coming online real soon which will act as building blocks to a ultimate goal.

Until then, join Startup Weekend DC e-Gov Edition this Friday.  Use our discount code JustDevIt and get $25 off.

Happy fathers day.  you may want to check out the Blue Angels Air show in Baltimore this Saturday/Sunday as well.  You really missed a treat yesterday watching these guys fly low around downtown Baltimore buildings and the harbor.

In partnership with Code for America, we invite you to join us on June 15-17, 2012, at Microsoft’s Chevy Chase office to solve real-life problems faced by federal and local government agencies, citizens, and businesses or to breathe a new life into existing outdated solutions.  Watch how our first e-GOV event went down in Seattle, then read on to see how our event will be even better.

 

With DCGOV, we’re working with the City of Washington, DC and several agencies of the Federal Government to source dozens of potential ideas and problem areas where you can make an impact. Of course, any and all e-GOV ideas are welcome. Some of the directions which you may be interested in tackling include:

  • making government operations more efficient
  • simplifying government collaboration
  • reducing barriers to access government resources
  • facilitating & improving policy-making
  • supporting & enhancing civic engagement

The weekend will involve hands-on collaboration with expert mentors, panels on procurement and alternative monetization options in e-government, and more! Final presentations on Sunday will be judged on validation with real-life users, practicality of the prototype, and business model (for revenue-supported products & services) or impact (for grant-supported products and services). We strongly advise considering these criteria when deciding which ideas to pitch and which ones to build during the event. One winning team will earn a spot in the finalist round of Code For America’s Civic Accelerator!

Register today to improve government, learn new skills, explore emerging opportunities in the e-gov space, and launch a startup or product that makes a serious impact in others’ lives!
