Do You Have What It Takes to Redesign Miami Dade County’s One Stop Film Permit System?

Venture Café Miami is excited to partner with Miami Dade County and Microsoft to launch the PermiTech Challenge: a unique opportunity for tech designers and developers to build a application prototype to redesign the current One Stop Online Film Permitting System.  

The system, originally implemented in the year 2000 allows film producers to apply and pay for film permits online. County staff use an internal module for administrative and support purpose.

The County is looking to redesign the current system using modern technologies and coding principals to provide users with a richer and engaging experience and streamline the permitting application process.

This civic tech challenge is generously powered by Microsoft.
