Our core beliefs shape how we interact with each other and the world - we believe in:

Policy as code

Combining code and public policy requires careful consideration. Button uses ethical design to scale public good.

Governments need a digital evolution, not a revolution

Digital transformation requires iterative improvement, not innovative disruption. Button expands on what works to make a sustainable impact.

The future of digital governments is built, not bought

Sustainable systems are built, used, and maintained via public engagement. Button builds (instead of buying) because it reduces risk and resources in the long term.

Make the invisible visible

Transparency builds trust and fuels innovation. Button enables formerly-invisible insights and citizen perspectives.
