ID2020 is a public-private partnership dedicated to improving lives through private and user-controlled digital identity. Today, over 1 billion people live without any form of legal ID, which can leave them economically marginalized and robbed of the opportunity for active citizenship. ID2020 is setting technical standards and launching pilot projects aimed at finding scalable digital identity solutions for world's most vulnerable populations, particularly refugees and stateless persons.
LawMaker is a lobby for the lobbyless – a free advocacy tool for those of us who don’t have a professional working for them to influence our governments. LawMaker allows Americans to (1) crowdsource ideas for new laws, (2) build voter coalitions, and (3) engage politicians to advocate for change. Our mission is to democratize democracies by empowering the creation of new laws that originate from real people at the grassroots, instead of from lobbyists and wealthy special interests.
Reliable transportation is the primary barrier to stable employment for shift workers. Our solution leverages existing technology to provide “transportation as a benefit” through an integrated network of on-demand transportation options. We will quantify savings for employers due to reduced turnover and increased employee productivity, incentivizing them to fund the program long-term.
Louisville, like many cities, experienced a spike in homicides starting in 2016. Recent deployment of gunshot detection technology has been effective at pinpointing where and when gunshots occur. On average, police officers arrive long after the critical, first ten minute window to stabilize injuries. Placing drones strategically throughout our city, we will be able to deploy a camera to the scene within 90 seconds of when a gun is discharged and rapidly dispatch emergency medical personnel.

The OGC framework allows governments to work together to build useful tools for us all at no cost. Governments become project managers and private companies pay developers to do the work to spec and publish the cloud infrastructure-as-code online for any other entity to use for free.
