Uniting innovators & federal leaders

to improve government for every person in our country

We are change agents.

The most important part of technology is people. We unite our nation's brightest technologists, designers, and strategists with federal agencies as yearlong entrepreneurs in residence. With our agency partners, we're building a resilient government. Our fellows co-create stronger public services using data science, design, engineering, product, and systems thinking. Read about our program, people, and projects in the PIF Impact Report.

Your job as a PIF is to serve, build, and amplify. Success is measured by the number and quality of connections you have facilitated, by the number of useful and valuable products/services/things you have co-created, and the number of career staff that you have protected, empowered, and elevated.
