Impactive (formerly Outvote)

Political/civic tech helping progressive campaigns organize & mobilize

Impactive, backed by YCombinator and Higher Ground Labs, was founded in 2017 as a get-out-the-vote tool for Democrats. The Impactive product has since expanded to become a full-service platform allowing any campaign or cause to engage in distributed organizing. In the 2018 midterms, volunteers contacted over 1 million voters using Impactive. In 2020, we scaled significantly to meet the demand of this unprecedented election cycle. We’ve worked with over 500 clients nationwide, and volunteers have sent over 100 million text messages on behalf of Planned Parenthood, the DCCC, SEIU, Community Change, When We All Vote, Greenpeace, and campaigns up and down the ballot. Our work has been featured in The New York Times, Washington Post, TechCrunch, Fast Company, and many more. In 2021, Impactive will expand its platform further into nonprofit, advocacy, and additional markets. This will be an exciting time to play a critical role in helping shape the direction for what’s coming next. We will continue to prioritize our progressive values while building a feature-rich platform that will broaden our reach across the impact space.

Naseem Makiya

Naseem (he/him) is the founder of Outvote–a digital organizing platform for campaigns and causes. Outvote empowers volunteers to organize the people they know via text, email, and social media. Outvote then connects that work to the infrastructure of major campaigns and national organizations that have been doing similar work for decades. When he isn't pitching or writing code, Naseem can be found being a foodie with his wife, Pennylynn, and going on long walks with his dog, Lucy.
