Marisa Raya, Economic & Workforce Development, City of Oakland
The STIR program provided an opportunity for us to identify City staff and Departments who were hungry for innovation and match them with highly skilled startups to co-create solutions. I was really inspired by our City staff’s excitement for the program and their ability to work in an agile environment. The startups brought design and technical skills we wouldn’t have had access to otherwise.”

“Working with Spiral Scout has been a rewarding experience. Not only have they been able to put my vision into a digital solution, the STIR partnership has also provided me a different way of looking at project delivery. I have gained additional insight into how we as service providers can better understand and develop solutions for our clients.”
