Take Ownership of Your Democracy.

Help build a more participatory and inclusive democracy for all.


The Organization

Democracy Entrepreneurs exists to support the growing number of dynamic, committed and patriotic leaders who are leading organizations to improve the scaffolding of our democracy and enable broader civic and grassroots participation. Our focus is to support promising leaders and organizations in this space across a variety of issue areas like campaign finance reform, electoral process fairness, voter engagement, revitalizing civic life and healthy media. Our aim is to provide “wind in the sails” of those leaders who will revive our democracy today and help make it more inclusive, fair, equitable and just. We also want to facilitate organizations working together in coalitions for shared learning, collective impact, systems change and movement building.
