Our Story

We made Stae for cities, with cities.

Over the past two years, we’ve worked alongside city innovation and response centers to build a simple, secure infrastructure that empowers everyone—from city managers to city workers—to make better, data-driven decisions. Our vision is to enable a truly connected, intelligent city.

We created Stae to give open access to the world’s civic data in one place, in real-time, and with a uniform API. Our vision is for anyone to augment their existing apps or projects with open, civic data — data that is otherwise kept in incompatible formats or not up to date.
