Startup in Residence Training: Pitching to Government Buyers & Stakeholders

You’re invited to join the Startup-in-Residence program (STIR) for a special training for govtech startups. First, we’ll hear from some leading entrepreneurs about their perspectives for pitching effectively to government customers and gaining broad-based stakeholder buy-in. Then, STIR startups will have the opportunity to get feedback on their pitches for the products or services they’ve been developing while in the program.



The Startup-in-Residence program is a ground-breaking sixteen-week collaboration between the private sector and city departments to explore innovative solutions to civic challenges that can lower costs, increase revenue, enhance productivity and better engage citizens. The 2016 cohort includes 14 companies working across San Francisco, Oakland, San Leandro and West Sacramento. STIR is a program of San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation and Department of Technology.
