About the Network

Lincoln Network believes that when technology meets and supports the cause of liberty, our society wins and our future becomes brighter.

The Lincoln Story

For too long, government and technology have operated in separate silos — instead of embracing the exciting opportunities that sit at the intersection of these two powerful and influential domains. Government needs, and the people it serves deserve, new ideas and technologies to increase efficiency, effectiveness, and responsiveness. As such, technologists and innovators have an important role to play in addressing our nation’s most pressing problems. When both of these worlds come together, individual liberty and economic opportunity increases for all Americans.

Lincoln Network brings together leaders from both worlds to converse, collaborate, and effect change. While our vision is audacious, our mission is concrete and our value is measurable. We emphasize action. Thought leaders from across the country attend our Lincoln-Douglas Forums to debate the issues or code at our hackathons to build innovative products. We deploy leading technologists, from Silicon Valley and other leading tech hubs, around the nation. They are working on hard tech problems for the cause of liberty. We share best tech practices on Telegraph for advocacy, disrupting beltway bandits and reducing barriers to entry for new tech.

Leveraging the power of technology and fostering collaboration between these two worlds creates the future we need: A future full of economic and personal liberty.
