Let's celebrate the 2022 GovTech GroundBreakers!

Gisela Montes | GLASS | 12.13.2022

We are excited to share our Top 10 GovTech Groundbreakers 2022!

We are almost closing the year, and the best way to do it is by recognizing 10 people who have impacted and encouraged the GovTech community to be disruptive, innovative, and resilient this 2022.

#Disruptive, because they’re seeking to generate ruptures in the traditional processes, systems, and practices of the public sector to create modern 21st-century government structures.

#Innovative, because they’re pursuing the discovery of new practices in government, taking advantage of new technologies to generate paths towards public innovation. They do not destroy or delete but convert and transform, they rescue what has been built to make room for the new.

#Resilient, because they’ve shown their ability not only to dare to overcome the great challenges that the public sector faces but also to adapt, accommodate to new government scenarios.
