  • Noelle Marcus – project manager at EDC –city’s engine for economic development and diversification. Fortune of running our BigApp’s program
  • BigApps was launched 2010 and the first 3 years, had a number of notable successes including: Generated240 diverse mobile/web apps Opened > 750 datasets from > 60 agenciesAttracted 300K site visitors Awarded winners $117.5K in prizesAll of this was really great (and we were proud of our winner’s. Like Make My Way, a replicated…) But we felt that BigApps had an even bigger potential, So for our fourth iteration we decided to push BigApps to the next level and drove developers to use open to data tackle the City’s biggest challenges.
  • Of which there are many.Our key BigIssue, or track, was Jobs and Economic Mobility. This track challenged developers to build apps that would connect underserved residents to workforce development and employment opportunities, and/or access to vital worker support services, such as child care, healthcare, education, and affordable housing.Since most underserved New Yorker’s do not have access to computer’s at home, but do have access to smart phones we saw an app competition as an incredible opportunity to reach a population who are sadly most often isolated from the resources--but who could most benefit from access to these economic mobility tools. We looked to other cities for inspiration, such as Austin, Texas who is the home of Aunt Bertha--- a ……. Brought the founder Erine Grey to our 2 day Jobs and Economic Mobility hackathon. At this hackathon we brought together over --- developers, dosens of advisors from…. and had 21 teams demo at the end of the weekend. Overall, BigApps 2014 hosted 13 events, 5 hackathons bringing together
  • We recreated the BigApps formula to better match our civically driven mission: Data + Advisors + Collaborative Platform + Hackathons/Events Restructured the whole competition to be focused on 4 BigIssuesalong with collabfinder we developed and launched a whole new platform to help entrants find teammates, share ideas and solicit public feedback. Thirdly, we opened up a whole host of new data, on the public side ---from NYC Open Data platform, to allowing state and fed data. Also collected data from … private and non-profits.
  • To fully realize the new vision for BigApps we found incredible thought partners who shared our mission: BR, RH and Coatue helped us shape the issues through BigIssue Problem briefs to provide context and direction for developers, organize events and provide dozens expert advisors to the developer teams.
  • At our two day JEM Hackathon on April 20-21, we brought in speakers and expert advisors from the City’s top organizations fighting poverty and solving key workforce development challenges—including but not limited to: Children’s Aid Society, Office of Financial Empowerment, NYCHA, RobinHoodCoatue and Blue Ridge Foundations, Center for an Urban Future, SingleStop USA, FEGS, Careerosity, Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow + many more, as well as top developer experts from places like Bit.ly and Digg. Fourteen teams demoed their projects to a distinguished panel of judges who then selected the top 4 teams, which ranged in projects that connect parents to affordable user and gov’t rated childcare services to helping youth find employment and or workforce training opportunities through their android phones.
