Ben Berkowitz
Cofounder and CEO, SeeClickFix


Ben Berkowitz is the cofounder and CEO of SeeClickFix, a company born out of Ben’s frustration with traditional civic communication methods with local government.

Nearly three million block-level neighborhood issues have been resolved on SeeClickFix, and both the platform and Ben’s leadership in civic tech have served as examples of web technology shaping the future of civics.
