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.
