The news is starting to hit the web: the online organizing start-up, NationBuilder, has raised $6.25m in VC funding to expand its political organizing platform. in an email to current users, NationBuilder Founder and CEO Jim Gilliam writes:
“Honestly, I’m a bit dumbfounded by all that’s happened. I’m a geek who’s perfectly happy sitting in a room alone coding all day. But I also really, really believe that when we unlock the potential of a connected humanity, we will transform the world. And that starts with every one of us becoming leaders…apparently, even me.”
