Sponsorship

TICTeC brings together the world’s best Civic Technology researchers, practitioners and funders — but we can’t do it without financial support.

What makes TICTeC unique?

The Impacts of Civic Technology Conference (TICTeC) is the world’s only conference dedicated to exploring how Civic Technologies are impacting citizens, institutions and the development of digital participation around the world.

As Stefaan Verhulst from the GovLab at New York University puts it: “TICTeC is a crucial milestone in the development of Civic Tech and Open Government, because it takes stock of what we know, what works, and how.”

Where many tech conferences provide a platform for organisations showcasing new or existing digital tools or components, TICTeC is specifically focused on research. The majority of speakers will be presenting evidence-based research to demonstrate the impacts of Civic Technology.

Why does TICTeC matter? Because Civic Technologies represent the future of democratic engagement. TICTeC allows us to pause, examine what works, and, crucially, what doesn’t — and ensures that we are all on the right path to making the world more inclusive, more equal, and more transparent.

It’s one of the few opportunities for those working and interested in Civic Technology to come together in person to share experiences, knowledge, research, and code, to ensure that the wheel isn’t constantly being reinvented.

Why sponsor TICTeC?

  • Demonstrate thought leadership within one of the most important sectors for the future of democracy and engagement
  • Share your organisation’s projects, products and expertise with attendees actively using and looking for new technologies
  • Connect with and learn from experts in using technology for social good from across the world
  • Engage with current and potential clients (see who attends TICTeC)
  • Demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to transparency and accountability (many of TICTeC’s sessions are dedicated to tech for open government and transparency).
