Meet Jacob Dansey, Co-Founder and CEO of Involved

September 11, 2018

Involved is a micro-polling software for local government, helping offices increase civic engagement and understand public opinion with single question surveys.

In high school, Jacob wasn’t politically engaged and he wondered how do you get someone like himself involved in the process. He realized that people are more willing and interested to take a short survey coming from their representative, especially on an issue that is very relevant to them. Jacob founded Involved in hopes of increasing civic engagement by making it as easy as possible for people to voice their opinion.
