Today, Startup Caucus announced it has raised $500,000 for its second early stage fund for investing in campaign tech companies that are helping Republicans win back House and Senate majorities in 2022 and beyond.
This amount represents the most significant targeted investment in the Right’s innovation ecosystem to date. In 2020, the first Startup Caucus fund invested $150,000 in six companies.
Startup Caucus was co-founded in 2019 by leading Republican technologist Eric Wilson and GOP campaign veteran Joe Pounder. Startup Caucus investments provide candidates up and down the ballot with cutting-edge software to manage campaigns more efficiently, make better decisions, and reach voters more effectively.
In addition to direct financial investment, Startup Caucus provides support to portfolio companies through business development, marketing, and sales. Startup Caucus entrepreneurs connect with the organization’s extensive network of investors, allies, and operatives.

“I’m excited about what this major investment in campaign technology infrastructure means for giving Republicans up and down the ballot the right tools needed to win competitive elections,” said Eric Wilson, Managing Partner of Startup Caucus. “It’s no secret that Democrats have traditionally held an advantage in political technology innovation, and Startup Caucus is working tirelessly to narrow that gap in a crucial midterm election cycle.”
