Gov 2.0 Expo Announces First Ever Innovators Pavilion

Pavilion to Stage Forthcoming Government and Industry Technology Innovations

May 13, 2010

  Highlights/Key Facts:
  --  Under the Gov 2.0 vision, government should become a platform where
      people inside and outside government can innovate, feel empowered to
      participate and bring new ideas. Platforms lose their power when they
      fail to adapt.
  --  On May 25-27, Gov 2.0 Expo will become the platform where technology
      leaders and visionaries from government and industry will gather and
      share the latest innovations through its Innovators Pavilion.
  --  For the first time ever, the Pavilion will showcase 15 next-generation
      Gov 2.0 companies, such as:
      --  DotGov, Inc., which is a Gov 2.0 start-up company based in
          Seattle, will be showing how it is developing a mobile platform
          that provides citizens with tools to directly interact with their
          city in an unprecedented way.
      --  CiviGuard, a location-aware, smart phone optimized and cloud-based
          emergency communications platform, will be showing its near
          real-time civilian outreach.
      --  IdeaScale allows users to create real-time feedback communities
          based on the concept of crowd sourcing.
      --  Other companies include Semantifi, GovLive, DataPortal, Simpler
          Systems, Caspio, Mashery, Forio Business Simulations, Igloo
          Software, Limehouse Software and Twilio.
