Mayor's Tech Council

Mayor's Tech Council

In order to tap into the deep wealth of knowledge and experience that exists in Sacramento's innovation ecosystem, Mayor Darrell Steinberg appointed a Tech Council of regional innovation experts. The Tech Council advises the Mayor's Office for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (MOFIE) on matters related to economic development in the technology sector. Further, the Tech Council plays a role in vetting and recommending grants and investments available through the Innovation & Growth Fund policies. The Tech Council meets on a quarterly basis and is staffed by MOFIE.
