SGO announced today a $3 million seed investment in eVote, a web and mobile platform designed to enable people and organizations to think, decide and act together.
Located in New York, eVote is currently in beta and working with a select group of clients across multiple consumer industries. eVote will be available to the public later this year.
“It’s rare to have a trifecta of an innovative business idea, experienced team, and the opportunity to create a meaningful impact,” says Peter Espersen, CEO and Co-Founder of eVote. “From my experience in leading Lego’s Digital Innovation and Crowdsourcing to nurturing big ideas across multiple incubators, eVote is the first technology platform that’s able to harness digital voices into actions and business decisions.”
eVote’s applications span private and public sectors for businesses and consumers. SGO is a strong partner whose shared vision and deep expertise will fuel eVote’s ability to inform, gather and make changes together.
“SGO looks for tools and solutions that will expand the infrastructure for democracy in the 21st century. The U.S. market is ready for something new and eVote has great potential to transform how societal challenges can be addressed,” says Antonio Mugica, CEO of SGO and Smartmatic.
