The Illinois Open Technology Challenge brings government, developers and communities together in a common mission to use public data and create digital tools that will serve today’s civic needs and promote economic development.
Out In the Community
We are working together with nonprofits, community organizations, and civic leaders who can provide insights into the information needs of particular communities.
In the Developer World
We will help to make connections between entrepreneurs, technologists and their communities in order to better understand what products will best serve civic needs.
We are working to increase the number of units of government that publish data online and engage with government employees and agencies as knowledgeable and trusted partners.
