Columbia-based Voterheads, a web-based social media platform and alert service for local politics, has been inducted into the 2017 Class of Startup Exhibitioners by Startup Grind at its annual event held this month in California.
“Of the 6,000 plus startups that were considered, 100 were selected representing the Startup Grind community across 80 countries. These startups have great teams, traction, technology, and massive markets,” Derek Anderson, founder and CEO of Startup Grind, said in a statement.
Startup Grind is an independent startup community connecting 300,000 founders in over 200 cities. The organization nurtures startup ecosystems in 80 countries through events, media, and partnerships with organizations like Google for Entrepreneurs.
Voterheads offers a free service that “makes democracy more user-friendly at a local level across the United States. We are very proud and excited to have been chosen from 6,000 candidates,” said Karl McCollester, CEO of Voterheads.
Subscribers receive tailored alerts when elected officials are going to discuss what's happening at city and county council meetings and school boards.
