Reboot Democracy leverages the very best of Silicon Valley to help people break out of their echo chambers and create tools to revolutionize political engagement.
Our country is deeply divided and our democratic system is broken. Citizens feel unheard and disempowered.
The great news is, we've never been more motivated to make substantial change.
How we got started:
Reboot Democracy began as a hackathon in 2016. It was designed to bring together a group of diverse, motivated people -- best and brightest of Silicon Valley-- and create the environment for them to tackle the many problems of democracy. The results were innovative, inspiring, and sometimes off-the-wall. The potential for impact was palpable, and the need for ongoing support was obvious.
Enter: Reboot Democracy Accelerator -- the first ever democracy-focused accelerator to provide funding, mentorship, and an education program merging the best of Design Thinking and Lean Startup.
Reboot Democracy is a call to action.
