Democracy is breaking. Onerous voter ID processes, the influence of money in elections, corruption in government and gerrymandering are all threats that have left citizens without faith in the democratic system.
How do we make every citizen’s voice heard? How do we transform democracy back into a government of, by and for the people?
We Need Your Support
We have gathered a team of technologists, political scientists and innovators who are working on an Impact Strategy which aims to crowdsource solutions from competing teams around the world that address these democratic failures related to linear and outdated processes and tools. The expectation is that with new emerging exponential technologies—artificial intelligence, the blockchain, biosecurity/sensors, big data analytics—there are disruptive innovations and inventions that could be brought forward through an XPRIZE competition. The ambition of the WILL OF THE PEOPLE team is to present their Impact Proposal to the XPRIZE® ecosystem this October at the 2017 Visioneers™ Summit in hopes of being selected as the next global XPRIZE® competition launched to the world.
But in order to take the stage at the 2017 XPRIZE Visioneers™ Summit, the WILL OF THE PEOPLE team needs its own sponsor. And what better sponsor for a team focused on democracy than a crowdfunded team sourced through the passion and will of the people! The sponsorship goal for the team is $475k. We need your support!
