Description

We talk with Katherine Boyle, a partner at General Catalyst. Last week, Katherine announced a new civic tech-focused fund based in Miami with a mandate to back civic tech businesses. Today, we speak with her about:

-- The definition of civic tech and its five core areas: aerospace and defense, public safety, education, transportation, and infrastructure.
-- Why investing in tech is more important than ever.
-- How the last 50 years have seen the best and brightest move into the private sector due to loss of status, trust, and pay that used to accompany public sector jobs.
-- How the financialization of the economy has contributed to the crisis of talent in public service.
-- Why we can’t depend exclusively on governments to solve our problems in a world where no one wants to work in government.
-- How civic tech offers new solutions to problems currently being solved by analog executive departments.
-- The difference between public goods and consumer goods.
