BetaNYC is building a connected New York City by the people, for the people, for 21st Century.

Since 2009, we have worked with New York City government, elected officials, community boards, and community groups to engage NYC’s "civic-minded" technology and design community. We have helped pass transformative open government legislation, supported NYC’s civic oriented startups, and built a dedicated community who believes in the power of neighbors helping neighbors. We do this though advocacy and events that demystify open data, technology, and government.

We are NYC’s civic technology and open government vanguard. BetaNYC is fiscally sponsored not-for-profit and an organizing force for local civic engagement. We are a network of civic-minded volunteers who contribute their skills toward safe spaces, digital platforms, and local empowerment.
