RALEIGH – Cityzen Solutions, Inc., a Raleigh startup founded in January 2014 as a part of ThinkHouse, has raised more than $6.1 million from a single investor, according to an SEC filing.

The company operates PublicInput.Com and provides community engagement software for governments.

“Collaborative democracy succeeds through technology, we work to ensure government agencies can build lasting relationships with the communities who rely on them,” the company’s website reads.

It notes that more than 120 public sector entities are clients of the firm, from 35 U.S. states, including the City of Raleigh, the City of Charlotte, the City of Austin, Fairfax County, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, according to its website.

The software built by the company enables its clients to “conduct surveys, host meetings, and communicate with the communities they serve,” according to the LinkedIn profile of company founder and CEO Jay Dawkins.

The company recently added support on public input sessions via a format the company calls “hybrid public meetings.”

Neither the company, nor Dawkins replied to multiple requests for comment from WRAL TechWire.
