TechCongress gives talented technologists the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in federal policymaking and shape the future of tech policy through a one-year Congressional Innovation Fellowship (CIF) with a Member of Congress or Congressional Committee. We bring diverse tech talent, ideas and training to Congress and is building a practical and pragmatic understanding of Washington within the tech community. We bridge the divide of knowledge and experience between DC and Silicon Valley for better outcomes for both. The CIF provides a unique opportunity to change Congress by injecting desperately needed technological expertise into the Legislative Branch. TechCongress is committed to building an ecosystem of diverse, cross-sector technology policy leaders.
