Innovation @ scale.
This is a uniquely disruptive moment in the evolution of technology, offering a once-in-a-generation opportunity for governments both small and large to harness powerful new tools that can dramatically improve public sector outcomes.
This is the aim of e.Republic Labs.
e.Republic Labs is a market connector – an ecosystem to educate, accelerate and ultimately scale technology innovation within the public sector.
There are numerous innovative public sector initiatives currently underway and Labs provides an open foundation to connect the dots between them. Labs also takes aim at breaking down silos that constrain change by engaging expertise across government’s functional core in an integrated approach to problem solving. This unified environment provides an incredible opportunity to collaboratively solve the most critical and common issues facing public sector agencies today. Most importantly, Labs puts in place a new open structure to surface and rapidly test solutions in the trenches of actual public sector agencies across the country and then provide a framework to scale those solutions broadly through the ecosystem.
We also understand that public innovation is not just about exciting technologies or great ideas. Governments are unique environments where many, often competing demands influence how and what gets done. That’s why Labs takes a full 360 degree approach to the meet the challenge of how innovation happens.
Solving problems in government requires viewing the challenge from more than just a technology angle. Labs provides a 360 degree view that surfaces missing elements that are vital to fully understanding the public sector ecosystem.
