Program objectives

Digital inclusion

CiviConnectors operates on the principle of Leaving No One Behind, which strives to ensure  that no one is excluded from utilizing technology in everyday life. We aim to create a holistic infrastructure that sustainably supports the network members, the program participants, and – by extension – the citizens.

Transparency and collaboration

CiviConnectors fosters an open and seamless exchange of knowledge and experience. By adopting a citizen-centric approach, network members come together to address public service challenges and support the program participants in developing relative, inclusive, and accessible solutions.

Startups support

CiviConnectors stands for empowering startups to create societal and economic impact. This is achieved with direct support for up to 12 teams as well as opportunities to take part in further support initiatives geared towards nationwide growth.


The program was developed and is being implemented by the nonprofit organization enpact. It is supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in Egypt, within the framework of the Supporting e-Government and Innovation in the Public Administration (InnoPA) project, on behalf of the German Government.
