The world is moving into a new age where innovation and improvement is expected.

Pioneers push the limits of the status quo to revolutionize industries and businesses.

Better, faster, stronger is the mantra for service, technology, and leadership. There is only one way to move.


So why is the most important business being left in the dust? The business of government. The business of serving the people of the great nation we live in.

Where is the innovation and improvement in the sector that has the most impact on our present and our future?

It's time to take action.

Innovate Your State

Innovate Your State is a nonprofit (501c3) organization dedicated to educating and encouraging public participation to fundamentally improve government. We believe that through innovation and collaboration we can find solutions to the problems we face today.

Our Principles


Challenge the status quo by fundamentally transforming and modernizing California with a “fresh start” or an “entrepreneurial” mindset.


Provide for better representation and engagement of citizens and accountability of leaders to the people they represent.


Improve incentives in education to achieve long-term economic prosperity and create a more educated workforce that is better prepared for the jobs of the future.


Incentivize governments to be accountable to their citizens - compete for customers.


Create opportunities to improve the quality of life for hard working Californians across key sectors such as housing, infrastructure, social safety net programs and the environment.


Clean up the failures and update methods of the last several decades that are preventing further success and progress.
