We believe the $5+ billion political communications market today is where the music industry was at in 2001, right before the release of the iPod. It is dominated by a few major channels and badly in need of user-centered disruption. We’re starting to disrupt that market by augmenting (and over time, replacing) endless election season TV ads and piles of mail with beautifully designed and socially curated political information. By working with us you will have a chance to help accelerate that disruption and shape the future of democratic participation, starting here in the US and then expanding globally.
