Go Public - Stories of Government Getting It Done


From the Writers and Editors of Governing and Government Technology | 

Feb 20, 2018

Go Public is a new podcast from Governing and Government Technology. Every episode, we'll be exploring successful public-sector innovations and stories of government getting the job done.

In this debut episode of Go Public, we look at two initiatives in New York City with similar-sounding names and goals but very different approaches.

One is an innovation challenge run by the mayor's office called NYCx; the other, called Urban-X, is a program for private-sector company founders run by a venture capital firm that specializes in startups that solve city problems.

Both programs share the view that there are no small problems in government, leading each to embrace a little hyperbole in describing the nature and scope of their work -- they refer to their projects as moon shots.
