Join us for the next Midwest GovTech Meetup. The first few events have already built a growing community of hundreds of government technology leaders. Come on May 23rd to hear from thought leaders, see new products, and connect with others in the industry-leading Midwest GovTech ecosystem.

This event will feature Tom Schenk Jr, the former CDO of the City of Chicago, and currently the Director of Analytics of KPMG.

Tom will discuss how KPMG is working in the public sector, and will then sit down with Abhi Nemani, former CDO of the City of Los Angeles, to provide their perspectives -- and tips -- on selling to government, as the recipients of hundreds (if not thousands) of pitches from GovTech companies.


The government technology (GovTech) market is valued at over $400B. That’s because government does everything ranging from paving the streets to collecting taxes — and all of that requires technology. Many technology entrepreneurs are now tackling this vitally important industry, with all its unique challenges and opportunities. And more and more every day. The GovTech industry is on fire.

The GovTech Meetup is a chance for the industry to come together to share what new, what’s hard, and what we can do together. At each event you’ll get overviews from thought leaders on the state of the field and exclusive access to product announcements from GovTech startups. This is designed to spark discussion for attendees — GovTech entrepreneurs, city leaders, and area experts — on what’s next for the industry.

The event is hosted without agenda but kindly by Marketplace.city and Ethoslabs.us.
