Join us for a demo night featuring some of the most exciting new civic technology projects in the NYC tech scene!
Our demos so far include:
FundElevator is a new fundraising platform that helps political candidates and charities reach wider audiences and make deeper connections with them. We're all about making it easy for you to change the world. Our CEO, Mickey Costa, is a GW Law graduate dedicated to making democracy for and by the people. Our CTO, James Schuler, is a summer 2012 Y-Combinator grad and 2013 Thiel 20 Under 20 fellow. Check us out at www.fundelevator.com.
NYC Votes is a new voter engagement platform built by a coalition of companies in the NYC tech community (Tipping Point Partners, Method, Pivotal Labs among them) in partnership with the New York City Campaign Finance Board. The first portion of NYC Votes, a mobile tool for candidates to accept credit card contributions and manage their campaign finance reporting, was released on July 2nd. A civic engagement tool, for voters to find information about voting, candidates, and important deadlines, will be released late this summer. Visit www.nycvotes.org to learn more about the project.
If you have or know of an exciting civic tech project you’d like the community to see at our demo night, tell us about it so we can have you demo that night!
We’ll have lots of pizza and beer for you. We hope you’ll join us!
