"My only experience ever with political campaigns was one Saturday in New Hampshire where I volunteered to go up with the Harvard Republican Club and knock doors for a day. It opened my eyes to this new opportunity for where technology and entrepreneurship we see in Silicon Valley hadn't really permeated as deeply.".
Our guest today is Will Long, who is the co-founder and CEO of Numinar, the world's first artificially intelligent political campaign data platform that shows users how to win. Will and his friends started Numinar in 2018 while still at Harvard and now it's used by campaigns across the country. Numinar was the first investment we ever made with Startup Caucus and I've had the privilege of working with Will and his team for a few years now. In our conversation, we talk about Will's journey as an entrepreneur carving out a path in politics and lessons learned along the way.
