Event description

Description

The GovHack Series is an international event that hosts valuable discussions and a start-up competition that sets out to identify how technology can help governments solve challenges, with the ultimate goal of benefiting their citizens.

Innovative startups in each of the participating eight cities will compete to showcase their solutions. The winner from each of the cities will be awarded $10,000 USD, and will advance to compete for the grand GovTech prize of $100,000 USD at the World Government Summit 2019 in Dubai.

All eight winning startups will also be invited to be part of Area 2071, an incubation program in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

In our drive to help prepare governments for the future, the Government in 2071 Guidebook was published this year and highlights expected megatrends across both social and technology domains which will alter the how we live, and as a result, how governments services will need to adjust and redesign to prepare for such changes. The GovHack series is aimed to tackle both the societal and the technology changes by engaging various members of the community across different cities of the world.

The series aims to engage thought leaders, government officials, and the private sector through discussions on next steps as we prep for what’s to come. Simultaneously, start-ups from across different communities will be gathered to showcase innovative solutions, and challenged to take their solutions to the next level, as we re-imagining the role of technology in future governments.
