Who are we?

Founders


  • Jennifer Hollett

    says if she were a Super PAC, she’d be called Journalism Digital Democracy Future. She is an award winning cross-platform journalist, who just finished her Master in Public Administration at the Harvard Kennedy School. She has 15 years experience in broadcast journalism and digital media management. At Harvard, she worked as a Research Assistant for Vivek Kundra, the first CIO of the United States.

  • Dan Siegel

    is a former management consultant and a political junkie. Yet Dan found himself utterly confused when President Obama declared that Super PACs will “be able to simply purchase an election.” Sounds scary, but—what’s a Super PAC, and how are they going to buy the election? The Super PAC App is his attempt to help answer that question. Dan received an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management.
