RFP: Sacremento Innovation - Govtech moniez on the tablez

Just got an email about this innovation RFP put out by Sacramento. They have a $750k grant they’re working off of.

The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit, from qualified
applicants, proposals designed to strengthen the Capital Region’s innovation
ecosystem by increasing the region’s capacity to innovate and improving access
to opportunity in the innovation economy for the region’s residents. The services
solicited place a high priority on strengthening startup resources, accelerating
entrepreneurial learning, and increasing the intersection of ideas. In addition,
this RFP places a priority on targeting resources to ensure access to opportunity
in the innovation economy throughout the entire region, particularly in
underserved areas and communities.

Prequal due Dec 20
