Erik is joined by Ron Bouganim (@ronboug), founder and managing partner at Govtech Fund. Ron explains his thesis at Govtech Fund and how he got started in the space. He gives us a sense of just how neglected the technical operations of government are and why there are so many ripe opportunities in the space. He talks about why traditional venture capital wasn’t interested in the deals he was sending his way and why he had to start his own fund. He paints a market map for us in the space and differentiates between civic tech and government tech. He talks about some of his requests for startups, gives his advice for founders and talks about how government tech products can increase transparency in government around the world.
