We help government run excellent, effective public consultations
If you work in government (or a related organisation), we bring you tools that make it easy to involve citizens in decision making. People working in government have suffered too long with digital tools that aren't good enough. We're helping change that.
We help people give their views on decisions that affect them
For citizens (and we're all citizens), our goal is better public services and a healthy, functioning democracy. The relationship between those who govern and those who are governed is evolving. Our platforms make it easier for you to be involved in policy decisions and the design of public services.
We're small, lean and keen
We're not some huge business that makes excessive profits from government contracts.
There are about 20 of us, based around the world (mostly in Bristol, UK and Brisbane, Australia).
We're a for-profit social venture, working for the triple goals of profit, people and planet.
We're lean because we want to be able to offer outstanding tools at prices that make sense for government, and because, well, waste makes no sense. Size hasn't limited what we can deliver: we've worked with government at the highest levels on projects that are high profile, but we're affordable for everyday use.
We started doing this in 2001. We didn’t invent digital democracy, but we’ve been around it for a long time.
