Nationbuilder is the first community organizing system - it's both a website and a people database that's fully integrated - to help leaders grow and organize their communities to acheive great things. It brings the tools that political leaders like Obama and Romney use to everyone. Whether you're a local candidate, a non-profit, or a radio show... it gives everyone the ability to organize around an idea.
We spoke with Jim Gilliam, the founder and CEO, of Nationbuilder. He also co-founded Robert Greenwald's, Brave New Films. His speech, "The Internet Is My Religion," at the Personal Democracy Forum has been viewed over 500,000 times and been called the best video on the internet. We spoke with Jim about why he created Nationbuilder, who will use it, venture capital funding, and how it has the power to change the world.
A lot of conservatives talk about the free-market, what about the free-market for governance, and what does that look like? The potential to experiment with that online, with these online communities, where blood isn't shed. Where we can figure out these problems through code and then it will naturally spill out into the IRL... It's what gets me really excited about this, this is the problem to solve. How can nations form, how can people come together at scale across the entire world instantaneously?
