We’re a coalition of businesses and business leaders who are taking a stand for better government.
And we’re building a world-class political organization to make that vision a reality.
Business and technology leaders are coming together for one big purpose: to upgrade American elections, policymaking, and government.

Bad government is a problem that affects everyone’s bottom line. Last fall, a Harvard Business School report concluded that our broken political system is the #1 drag on our country’s economic competitiveness. For decades, we’ve endured political squabbles, partisan gridlock, outmoded bureaucracy, unreliable elections, and an increasingly unpredictable political environment. And now, we’re paying the price.
Incremental fixes have repeatedly failed to address these deeply rooted issues, leaving pay-to-play politics and outmoded bureaucracies in control. The result? Competition and innovation decline, and businesses lose out.
The good news is that proven policy solutions and technology upgrades already exist. We just need the political will to make them happen.
We are a group of business leaders who would rather compete in the marketplace than the political arena. We believe that our political system should work well regardless of who is in power. And we are ready to help build a government that incentivizes lawmakers to collaborate and get results.
Business has led the way on numerous critical issues throughout our nation’s history, including government reform. It’s time we do it again.
Our goal is to establish a healthy political system that aligns with a robust business climate. We are working to upgrade our government by starting at the state level and moving to the federal level. We’ve identified three areas of focus to get us there:
Our approach is inspired by proven ideas from the business world: competitive forces, best practices, aligned incentives, open information, and disruptive innovation. By applying these methods to government, we will get better leaders, ideas, policies, and results.
In the weeks and months to come, we’ll continue to engage business leaders and policy experts to define the most important and impactful ways to upgrade our government.
