The conversation changes when startup founders talk with mayors, not funders.

Government Technology has been following gov tech startups for more than three years — from their co-working spaces to their meetings with venture capitalists — and tracking their progress as they close funding rounds, pilot and win business in state and local government and earn placement on the GovTech100, an annual listing of startups active in the government technology market.

Gov Tech and Governing followed a trio of startup founders into the mayor’s lair at South By Southwest (SXSW) earlier this month. When the pitches ended, we looked at what happens when mayors ask the questions rather than investors.

On this episode of our new podcast, Go Public, Government Technology’s Ben Miller and Governing’s J.B. Wogan join hosts Paul Taylor and Dustin Haisler for the anatomy of a gov tech pitch session.
