In a Motel 6 in Silicon Valley, three high school friends founded FiscalNote.

Wootton High School
Tim Hwang, Jonathan Chen, and Gerald Yao were friends since their high school days at Thomas Wootton High School. Their friendship would be the foundation for the start of FiscalNote.
Motel 6 Silicon Valley
The founders moved out to Silicon Valley and on June 11, 2013, they incorporated their new company, FiscalNote. Tim, Jonathan, and Gerald spent the summer of 2013 in Sunnyvale, California building FiscalNote from the ground up, staying in a Motel 6 the entire summer.
After raising their first round of investment from Mark Cuban, NEA, Jerry Yang, and First Round Capital Dorm Room Fund, the FiscalNote trio moved their office to Bethesda, Maryland, where the FiscalNote team started to grow.
