Information Changes Everything

From people, to policy, to politics, FiscalNote is on a mission to reinvent the way organizations around the world understand the bigger picture.

FiscalNote began out of our desire to answer a fairly simple question: why isn’t there a way to keep track of what’s happening in government — at every level — in a simple, comprehensive, and reliable way?

With a background in public service and a major in public policy, Co-Founder and CEO Tim Hwang — who at the time was a rising senior at Princeton — thought this was a problem worth solving. That’s what led Tim and high school friends Gerald Yao, and Jonathan Chen to spend the summer of 2013 hunkered down in a Silicon Valley Motel 6 with $2,000 of funding and a mission: to build a platform that combined global government data, analytics, and tools to better connect the world to its governments.

Today, FiscalNote supports thousands of organizations working in over 25 countries. As we've grown, our mission has expanded beyond government affairs into digital advocacy and issues management, uniting the work of professionals across public, corporate, and government affairs.

Understanding the Big Picture.

When it comes to today’s biggest issues, there are plenty of companies focused on helping you see the big picture. At FiscalNote, we’re much more interested in helping you to understand it, and do something about it. We’ve always believed that emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing hold the key to making that happen, and after working with thousands of client organizations over the last five years, we’re more sure of that than ever.
