CivicRise uses technology to help advocacy nonprofits mobilize more effective, sustained and measurable civic engagement.

Issue-advocacy nonprofits such as the ACLU are struggling with declining engagement rates through their traditional communications channels. The CivicRise smartphone app allows organizations to more effectively mobilize individuals to take civic action on their behalf, improving the relationship and reducing churn.

Their target customers are issue-advocacy nonprofits, a $26B industry comprising 15K organizations. They recently launched with 10 pilot customers and are prepping to scale in 2018.

The Research Triangle Park, in partnership with Kauffman Labs, hosts regular events for startups and entrepreneurs at The Frontier . We hope you'll join us for free coffee and entrepreneurial community support, as two new startups present their ideas!
