Mentor - Cities: Adrienne Schmoeker (New York City)

In the startup space I designed an enterprise business for Catchafire, which provided skills-based volunteer programs for Viacom, MTV, Merck, Etsy and others. Next I joined the Mayor's Office of Technology & Innovation leading open innovation projects with City Agencies such as the Parks Department, Housing Authority, and Mayor's Office. I then transitioned to the Mayor's Office of Data Analytics to lead the NYC Open Data initiative's civic engagement strategy. Learn more at
