WHAT IS STARTUP IN RESIDENCE (STIR)?
Startup in Residence (STIR) connects government agencies with innovative startups to develop technology products that address civic challenges. The 16-week program builds on the success of the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation (MOCI) 2014 “Entrepreneurship in Residence” pilot initiative, which produced 6 technology product innovations designed to meet local government needs. The 2016 program includes the cities of Oakland, San Leandro and West Sacramento.
“The Startup in Residence program is a model for civic innovation and regional collaboration. This program is a unique opportunity for government agencies and startups to think creatively about how we can all work together to modernize government to benefit residents.”
– Mayor Edwin M. Lee
