GovLoop’s mission is simple: connect government to improve government. We aim to inspire public sector professionals to better service by acting as the knowledge network for government.
GovLoop serves more than 300,000 members by helping them to foster collaboration, learn from each other, solve problems and advance in their government careers. The GovLoop community has been widely recognized across the public sector — federal, state local, industry and academia — as a leading site for addressing public sector issues.
GovLoop is the largest government niche network of its kind and boasts an extremely engaged membership that create or comment on nearly 1,000 blog posts and discussion forums every month.
GovLoop works with top industry partners, including Google, HP, Microsoft and IBM to provide resources and tools, such as guides, infographics, online training and educational events, for public sector professionals. GovLoop also promotes public service success stories in popular news sources like the Washington Post, Huffington Post, Government Technology, and other industry publications.
Steve Ressler founded GovLoop in 2008 as a federal employee searching for answers to common government problems. His passion for improving public service as a third generation federal employee drove him to create what has become GovLoop.
