WHO WE ARE

Founded by the former Chief Data Officer of the City of Boston, Civin brings together a team of widely-recognized experts who've spent their careers bringing innovative technology to the public sector.

LAURA (MEIXELL) CUNNIFF

Laura is a proven public sector technology leader with a reputation for building consensus and finding creative solutions when resources are limited.

Her passion for enabling high quality public services led her to serve as a Presidential Management Fellow supporting data-driven management at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, as a Code for America Fellow, and as Chief Data Officer for the City of Pittsburgh where she co-founded the region's University managed open data program.

SAM EDELSTEIN

Her accomplishments in Boston include coordinating the implementation of the city's short term rental ordinance and managing the 2020 release of Metrolist, the city’s marketing platform for income-restricted and affordable housing opportunities.

WHAT WE DO

After years of watching the tech industry and the public sector so often fail to get on the same page, we realized that there was an urgent need for someone who could help these two industries understand each other. Our team works with both the producers of civic tech and its consumers, with a mission to get the best tools available in the hands of those who need them.

For Tech Companies

Our team works with technology companies to build better products for the civic tech market, to develop new business opportunities, and to find and collaborate with partners across the government, nonprofit, technology, and investor landscape.

For Governments & Nonprofits

We help public sector organizations to find the right technology for their specific needs, to develop innovation strategies and policies, and to build and develop highly-effective data, engineering, and digital teams.
