Civic Innovation and You: Partnering L.A.'s Start-Up Community and City Government
Thursday, Oct. 23 **Special date**
10 - 11:30 a.m.
Please join us as we welcome L.A. City Controller Ron Galperin who will discuss his goals to partner with L.A.'s tech community to use the City's open data portal information to help promote civic engagement.
Galperin is looking for the best and brightest minds of L.A.'s growing start-up sector to take the massive amounts of data the City has available and find ways to harness it into practical uses to improve the quality of life for residents and for businesses.
Galperin became the 20th Controller of the City of Los Angeles on July 1, 2013. For many years, Galperin has been a leading voice on reforming government, cutting waste and helping businesses create jobs. As chair of the Los Angeles City Commission on Revenue Efficiency, he found new revenue sources and budget savings to deliver more city services to residents.
