Do you want to do a civic tech project in Sweden? Come to our meetup where you can meet others and find a partner for a potential application to Vinnova’s civic tech funding! Join us at Goto 10.
Welcome to a meetup fully dedicated to the funding. We’re going to focus on mingling and networking so everyone interested can discuss ideas and partnerships and hopefully build the best applications possible! This funding is the first of its kind in Sweden and the deadline to apply is the 17th of February (more info below).
Civic Tech Sweden gathers the actors of the young civic tech ecosystem since its creation in 2017. It tries to create the right synergies and provides support and international contacts to all the projects.
o 18:00 Mingle and registration (for those who want to pitch)
o 18:15 Annie Lindmark from Vinnova presents the Civic Tech funding
o 18:30 International example of Civic Tech (to be announced shortly!)
o 18:50 Short presentations of the participants (around 5 minutes). Do you already have an idea and are looking for partners, or represent a company looking to team up, or a government agency with citizen needs?
o 19:30 Mingle (hopefully with the perfect new partners that you just found)
o 20:30 Possibility of continuing in a bar
