Connecting tech, policy & politics

TheBridge translates between tech, policy and politics and provides a unique forum for productive, nonpartisan dialogue increasing understanding and collaboration between innovators and policy makers.

Launched in Washington, DC & the Bay Area, TheBridge network has quickly expanded to other cities including Austin, Denver, New York City, Boston, and Chicago. TheBridge convenes regular discussions and events and provides key resources for the community including bi-weekly updates, profiles of leaders, and a jobs board to help employers reach top talent and job-seekers make a career pivot at this intersection.

TheBridge community consists of leaders and knowledge-seekers at the intersection of tech, policy, and politics. Our community is wide-ranging across the public and private sectors including federal elected officials, technical experts, investors, corporate CEOs, community organizers, government employees and political rising stars across the country.

We believe mutual understanding will allow for a more collaborative future. Sign up to join!
