How do you find out about new tools, solutions & best practices for your work?

At CivicMakers, we are building a platform to connect “democracy practitioners” who need solutions and implementation guidance for their projects (e.g., nonprofits, local agencies, benefit corporations, institutions, community organizations, etc.) with “civic tech developers” who are looking for users and clients for their products. We envision this platform as a knowledge base that supports citizens who are creating, implementing, and reporting back on experiments in building a better democracy via our communities, our workplaces, and our governments.

Your candid feedback will help us identify the missing gaps in the successful discovery, adoption and implementation of the growing number of tools available. This survey should take you 5-7 minutes.

** Important note about language in this survey **
We are using the term “tools” as shorthand for any solution (software, social technology, program framework, etc.) that meets your needs for a given project. This is a VERY broad definition, so we’ve provided a number of examples to help illustrate the scope of our inquiry. PLEASE READ THE HELP TEXT AND EXAMPLES AND USE THEM AS INSPIRATION, NOT REQUIREMENTS.

PRIVACY NOTE: The information provided to CivicMakers in this survey is confidential and will not be shared with third parties except in an aggregate and non-personally identifiable manner.
