Breakfast and Registration Begins at 8:30 a.m. with program starting at 9:00 a.m.
The District has more jobs in professional and business services than any other sector. Through these sectors, our local business community and innovative entrepreneurs are making a difference in the everyday lives of DC residents and the overall efficiency of DC government by lending expertise, providing services and innovative technology, and collaborating on public-private partnerships. Within the past few years our professional services industry including the gov tech market has generated more investment in the city, started new companies and offered fresh new innovations that moved the needle in the public sector. Join us at the next Economic Intelligence Roundtable to discuss the dynamics of and impact of GovTech in the District.
The event, brought to you by DC’s Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) in partnership with the DC Chamber of Commerce, will bring together researchers, business development, government contractors, academia, the technology industry and policy makers to explore what data tells us about the growing professional services industry and how data is being used to inform public policy making in the District and how business enterprises are supporting GovTech activities that improve the lives of DC residents.
Participants will hear from Deputy Mayor Brian Kenner and distinguished panelists. Representatives from business, Govtech vendors, academia, community-based organizations, advocacy organizations, and government are encouraged to participate.
Since our first Economic Intelligence Roundtable in Spring 2015, we have been providing avenues of data-driven and technology-driven context for economic development policy and decision-making across several sectors. Like previous roundtables, this session will support an ongoing effort led by DMPED to increase access to opportunities that support all businesses and residents and strengthens vulnerable communities.
There is no cost to participate in this workshop, but due to space limitations, advance registration is required. To participate, please register by May 4, 2018 before space fills up!
