Interested in tech, social innovation and startups? Join a lunch conversation with the co-founders of Civic Roundtable, a new collaboration platform designed to connect public servants in real time and make the public sector more efficient. Austin Boral, Madeleine Smith and Josh Seiden launched Civic Roundtable while students at Harvard with the belief that technology has a critical role to play in facilitating connection and collaboration among public servants and the partners, associations and agencies with which they work. Described as "Reddit meets LinkedIn" in the inaugural 2023 Forbes 30 Under 30 Local Boston list, Civic Roundtable combines a secure space with peer-to-peer communication for users to ask questions, collaborate and share best practices. Since its launch in 2022, the platform has onboarded over 5,000 users across Homelessness Prevention, Election Administration, and Economic Development. Civic Roundtable recently closed a $5M seed round led by General Catalyst.

Whether you are passionate about social change or tech, this is an opportunity to connect with and learn from young founders who are paving the way. Expand your network, be inspired and learn more about this innovative platform. Lunch will be provided.
