New from Civic Lab: the Democracy Entrepreneurs Directory

December 8, 2021

New Profit’s Civic Lab is a leading nonpartisan initiative that invests in and grows innovative solutions building civic trust and inclusive democracy in America. Since its launch in 2019, Civic Lab has invested in 15 game-changing organizations, with more to come. 

Civic Lab created the Democracy Entrepreneurs Directory as part of its open investment selection cycle in 2021 to demonstrate the breadth and diversity of democracy organizations in our country. Over 100 organizations have already joined the Directory and we invite more organizations to become a part of this growing community by submitting this form

“The Democracy Entrepreneurs Directory is designed to amplify the burgeoning sector of democracy entrepreneurship in America. Organizations are employing a range of innovative strategies from civic education to litigation to policy advocacy. We hope this will be a valuable resource to practitioners, philanthropists, and other stakeholders.”

 – Yordanos Eyoel, Managing Partner at New Profit and Founder of Civic Lab 

In January 2022, Civic Lab will launch its third investment selection cycle to provide $100K in catalytic, unrestricted funding to each of eight organizations ($800K total), along with capacity-building support. Click here to learn more
