e.Republic official corporate logo
 

Established in 1984, e.Republic is the nation’s only media and research company focused exclusively on state and local government and education. Led by Dennis McKenna, media entrepreneur and co-founder, our award-winning publications, websites, more than 150 annual events and highly respected research operations are acknowledged as setting the gold standard in their respective fields. Our work has been cited in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Time, The Washington Post and USA Today.

In 1985, McKenna launched California County magazine in partnership with the California State Association of Counties. Early to recognize the impact new digital technologies would have on the public sector, in 1987 Dennis launched Government Technology, the first national magazine covering information technology in state and local government. Other successful media platforms followed, including Public CIO and Emergency Management - all of which have won numerous editorial and design awards.

Seeing the need for stronger analysis and research to support public sector innovation, e.Republic launched the Center for Digital Government and Center for Digital Education—the first-of-their-kind research and business intelligence advisory institutes focused exclusively on state and local government and education. The Centers are home to the widely cited Digital States Survey and Digital Government Navigator, a subscription-based market intelligence tool for companies targeting public sector business.

In 2009, e.Republic acquired Governing from Congressional Quarterly. Governing covers politics, policy and management for state and local government leaders. Recognized as the most credible and authoritative voice in its field, Governing provides non-partisan news, insight and analysis on budget and finance; transportation and infrastructure; workforce and economic development; health and human services and more. Its highly respected Public Officials of the Year program is in its 22nd year.

Headed by former Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser, Governing has grown with an expanded online presence, broad national events portfolio and launch of the Governing Institute. In 2014 the Institute launched its Women in Government Leadership Program, a special initiative which encourages future generations of women in public service.

Also in 2014, e.Republic launched two other new initiatives, e.Republic Labs and e.Republic Ventures. Designed to link state and local government to a new generation of innovative civic-tech solutions, e.Republic Labs serves as a catalyst and connector for the development, deployment and scalability of a new generation of government and civic technologies. e.Republic Ventures provides mentorship and capital for a select number of early stage companies to accelerate their entry into the public sector market.

e.Republic also acquired the regional tech business website Techwire in 2014 and relaunched it as a subscription based news and business intelligence service focused on the nexus of technology and government policy in California.

With nearly 200 employees in California, Washington, D.C. and throughout the United States, e.Republic is a unique company redefining the role of media at the intersection of innovation and public service.

 

e.Republic has been an active partner in the community for over 25 years, participating in efforts which encourage civic and social responsibility, leadership, diversity, tolerance and civil and human rights.

Established in 1984, e.Republic is the nation’s only media and research company focused exclusively on state and local government and education. Led by Dennis McKenna, media entrepreneur and co-founder, our award-winning publications, websites, more than 150 annual events and highly respected research operations are acknowledged as setting the gold standard in their respective fields. Our work has been cited in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Time, The Washington Post and USA Today.

In 1985, McKenna launched California County magazine in partnership with the California State Association of Counties. Early to recognize the impact new digital technologies would have on the public sector, in 1987 Dennis launched Government Technology, the first national magazine covering information technology in state and local government. Other successful media platforms followed, including Public CIO and Emergency Management - all of which have won numerous editorial and design awards.

Seeing the need for stronger analysis and research to support public sector innovation, e.Republic launched the Center for Digital Government and Center for Digital Education—the first-of-their-kind research and business intelligence advisory institutes focused exclusively on state and local government and education. The Centers are home to the widely cited Digital States Survey and Digital Government Navigator, a subscription-based market intelligence tool for companies targeting public sector business.

In 2009, e.Republic acquired Governing from Congressional Quarterly. Governing covers politics, policy and management for state and local government leaders. Recognized as the most credible and authoritative voice in its field, Governing provides non-partisan news, insight and analysis on budget and finance; transportation and infrastructure; workforce and economic development; health and human services and more. Its highly respected Public Officials of the Year program is in its 22nd year.

Headed by former Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser, Governing has grown with an expanded online presence, broad national events portfolio and launch of the Governing Institute. In 2014 the Institute launched its Women in Government Leadership Program, a special initiative which encourages future generations of women in public service.

Also in 2014, e.Republic launched two other new initiatives, e.Republic Labs and e.Republic Ventures. Designed to link state and local government to a new generation of innovative civic-tech solutions, e.Republic Labs serves as a catalyst and connector for the development, deployment and scalability of a new generation of government and civic technologies. e.Republic Ventures provides mentorship and capital for a select number of early stage companies to accelerate their entry into the public sector market.

e.Republic also acquired the regional tech business website Techwire in 2014 and relaunched it as a subscription based news and business intelligence service focused on the nexus of technology and government policy in California.

With nearly 200 employees in California, Washington, D.C. and throughout the United States, e.Republic is a unique company redefining the role of media at the intersection of innovation and public service.

 

Dennis is CEO and co-founder of e.Republic. Established in 1984, it is the leading media company focused on state and local government and education. Dennis oversees strategy and business development for the firm and is responsible for its market-leading print and digital publishing, business intelligence and integrated media.
