2017 STIR Exchange

The STIR Exchange matches startups with city departments to test technology products and build partnerships.

By participating in the exchange, city departments will gain exposure to products that could address their most pressing technology challenges. At the same time, startups will gain valuable insight on how to improve their product's usability.

Review the products and teams below. To arrange a user testing session, send a message to with your department name, contact information, availability, and preferred product. The startup will schedule a test date in August.

The tests are generally one hour or less, and include in-person or remote interviews, usability tests, and product demos.
