Today, my guest is one of my favorite people in gov tech. Jay Nath is the co-CEO of City Innovate. They're based in San Francisco, where Jay was the former Chief Innovation Officer for the City of San Francisco.
City Innovate is a program that Jay founded during his tenure with the city, and it was time to move on, he took the program with him, and he and his colleague Comran Siddique now run cohorts of cities through their matchmaking and procurement platform. They helped cities connect with startups and innovators who might never try to navigate the traditional procurement process for selling to government.
It's a program that solves real problems and creates new economic and service opportunities. I think you'll love how Jay thinks and what's important to him.
