About Us

Civin was founded in 2020 by the former Chief Data Officers of Boston and San Diego. After an initial focus on consulting, we began developing our own software platform in 2022. We were one of just twelve companies accepted into the January 2023 cohort of the Techstars Anywhere accelerator program, out of more than a thousand applicants. As of early 2023, we’ve begun work with a select group of communities on pilot projects, in advance of the public release of our platform later this year.
