I am building a social enterprise to re-imagine the way citizens engage with their representatives. WHAT IT IS: Agora is a two-way polling platform that empowers citizens and politicians to create polls to uncover and aggregate real-time public opinion. Users are verified through social media log-in and voter's registration address. WHY: Conventional ways of "telling your Congressman what you think" is antiquated: phone calls, fax, email, letters, or even protests. By lowering the cost of civic communications, Agora empowers people who are more moderate and less partisan to take part in the political discourse. Agora won the RevoltDC hackathon recently. A prototype for concept validation can be ready in 1-2 weeks' time. I am looking for a technical co-founder.
