Announcing Our First Six Investments

October 2, 2019

Startup Caucus is excited to announce the first six companies participating in our startup accelerator. Each company will receive a $25,000 investment from Startup Caucus, have access to our network of political technologists and strategists, and participate in our education and training.

Liberals have invested millions in projects like Higher Ground Labs and New Media Ventures to develop a pipeline for campaign innovation. Startup Caucus is helping Republicans close the gap.

From empowering the relationship between candidates and voters to artificial intelligence-powered campaign targeting, these companies are developing cutting edge technology that will help give Republicans a competitive advantage in 2020 and beyond. Over the next twelve weeks, these companies will go through our accelerator program consisting of workshops, market research, and mentorship while rapidly improving their products in preparation for next year’s elections.

The six companies that comprise the inaugural Startup Caucus cohort are:

Numinar is the world's first AI-powered analytics and targeted outreach platform for political campaigns of all sizes.

Trailmapper is software that helps candidates, campaigners, and political professionals launch and scale campaigns.

Buzz360 is building apps that bring technology-enabled relational organizing to Republican campaigns.

Pundit is a social media platform to discuss politics online and provides granular data insights to campaigns.

Voterfied is a participatory democracy platform bridging the communication gap between politicians and constituents by establishing an engagement hub where citizens vote on issues, using blockchain technology for security and privacy.

Voter Science builds software that solves common needs of campaign technologists helping them more rapidly deploy their own software. 

All of our new portfolio companies are actively working on campaigns. If you are a candidate or campaigner interested in working with any of our companies, click here.
