The Civic Method

We bring data science, modern tech, and civic willpower together to create a force for public good.

Cities have some of the world’s most valuable data. The problem? It’s raw, nearly indecipherable, and hardly utilized. The CIVIC Method is built on the belief that cities can become the leaders of the next generation of innovators.

We’re building the teams and systems that make it happen.

When political will meets public imagination, the technology we can create is unlike anything the world has ever seen.

-Cat Nikolovski, Founder of CIVIC

Be the public imagination

From designers, to developers, to data scientists and beyond—we’re building talented, cross-disciplinary teams of nationwide collaborators intent on re-imagining the state of information in the United States.

Be the political will

Our collaborative model is optimized for agility, rapid procurement, and results. We’re looking for cities with complex problems who want to put tech to work for them.
