GovTech

GovTech is gaining momentum as it passes from an emergent state and is poised to go global. Its development has drawn comparisons to fintech, a sector which grew sixfold between 2011 and 2015. Both GovTech and fintech benefit from large citizen demand, a permissive policy environment and ready access to tech skills & financial capital. The concept of small businesses bringing innovative solutions to public services, that once proven can move to scale is exciting both political and market interest .
