Over the summer of 2019, the City identified civic issues and put them into a Civic Challenge Bank. Through rigorous scoring, the City is choosing the Civic Challenges for the Residency Program. These challenges will be announced in early January 2020 and the Residency Call for Applications will open on January 17th, 2020. Stay up-to-date with the Residency Program by filling out our contact us form.
In order for a startup to be considered for the Residency Program, proposals for the selected Residency Challenges must be submitted by March 2nd, 2020. Be sure to read the “How To Register” section to learn more!
The selected startups will work closely with the City, Geekdom, and CivTechSA throughout the duration of the Residency Program in order to have access to a rich community of like-minded entrepreneurs and mentors, ensuring the solutions are well-developed and on target with City needs.
At the end of the Residency, we’ll have a Demo Day to showcase the solutions the startups developed, highlighting all of their efforts, wherein the City departments will have the option to purchase the solutions.
