CivVic Labs brings government and startups together to solve public sector challenges.

Startups accepted into our three-month accelerator will work directly with a potential government customer on an MVP, supported with $30k funding, mentors and office space in exchange for a 'Simple Agreement for Future Equity' (SAFE).

At the end of the program, our startups have the opportunity to win a $150k contract to develop the solution.
