CivTech has spent the last four years creating and executing programs centered around students and entrepreneurs tasked with solving civic challenges by using technology to improve local lives and processes.
CivTechSA partnered with The Entrepreneurial World to present students with an opportunity to solve civic challenges in their community by working in teams to research, build, and pitch their solutions. Through the amazing mentorship from Washington Navarro of The Entrepreneurial World, five teams developed and pitched their solutions to city officials and local tech leaders. Ideas pitched ranged from industries trading reusable waste, to a sustainable mobile food truck.
Reckon Point – Mapped out 65,000 sq. ft. of the Airport facility with its Li-Dar-mapping robot, intake the LiDAR maps, and began development on an indoor navigation application across Android and iOS operating systems.
Kinetech Cloud – Built an online application and management tool to reduce the intake of paper/mail-in applications and increase the ability for DHS to review and approve Utility Assistance applications from residents.
Outreach Grid – Created a “universal platform” for the Department of Human Services (DHS) and other homelessness organizations to track encampments.
Rise Civic Consulting – Developed a “one-stop-shop” approach that provides a single portal of entry for residents, developers, and city leaders alike to connect and locate available affordable housing.
Redsquared – Provided a unified interface by which citizens of San Antonio can interact with various city services for requests, payments, and more.
Rubicon – Created a cutting-edge technology solution that reduces the amount of contamination that enters the recycling stream to cut operating expenses and improve collection processes for the City of San Antonio.
