Connecting cities with startups to address civic challenges

WHAT IS STARTUP IN RESIDENCE (STIR)?

Startup in Residence connects government agencies with innovative startups to develop technology products that address civic challenges. The 16-week program builds upon the City and County of San Francisco’s successful 2014 “Entrepreneurship in Residence” pilot initiative, which produced 6 technology product innovations designed to meet local government needs. The 2016 STIR program includes Oakland, San Leandro, and West Sacramento.
