The Civic Tech Field Guide is an open collection of over 2,000 Civic Tech entities, from apps to conferences to funders.

The project has collected and mapped the founding date and, where possible/applicable, the end date of hundreds of Civic Tech initiatives. The result is a comprehensive timeline demonstrating over a decade of growth in Civic Technology.

Matt and Micah return to TICTeC to offer an analysis of this open, global, and actively evolving research to help develop additional understanding and map out key trends in the field. In doing so, they hope to translate raw data into a broader awareness and fresh conversation.

They'll discuss what these trends portend for the field as a whole, and consider their effect on social impact.
