About Lincoln Network

For too long government and technology have operated in separate silos instead of embracing the exciting opportunities that sit at the intersection of these two powerful and influential domains. Government needs, and the people it serves deserve, new ideas and technologies to make it more efficient, effective and responsive. As such, technologists and innovators have an important role to play in addressing our nation’s most pressing problems.

Lincoln was born from the optimistic view that when technology and government meet, under the right conditions and with the right tools, both worlds win. Through hackathons, meetups and online engagement, we provide opportunities for the entrepreneurial community to come together and both collaborate on and learn about market-based, tech-powered solutions to our nation's biggest problems.
