In a world where future regulation drives technology markets at scale, and only selected few lobby governments - OpenPolicy is the world’s first policy intelligence and engagement technology platform, unlocking markets by democratizing and simplifying access to policy. While many policy tools and “feeds” exist, none of them proved useful for non-professional policy experts or entities like startups’ teams or VCs. With simplified access to policy, translation to focused tech and business trends, and a path to engagement - such entities can leverage policy to grow their TAM.
OpenPolicy’s market intelligence SaaS platform collects, analyzes, and structures valuable government and policy data, creating future market insights for startups, large enterprises and investment firms alike. By productizing a traditionally manual/services model, OpenPolicy is disrupting the current policy development market, and unlocking strategic decision-making capabilities for products, roadmap, GTM strategies and investment decisions to an endless market base.
Open Policy's Subject-focused coalitions advocate and engage with governments and standards bodies on focused and measurable priorities, opening the traditional sector-oriented trade associations model. The platform scales the engagement process and provides tools to manage the coalition. The manual outdated commenting process as it is today will be digital, smarter and efficient.
OpenPolicy's vision is to democratize policymaking. We strive to make policymaking accessible, affordable, and inclusive for all. Our goal is to empower everyone with a voice and enable policymakers to make better decisions for the future of our innovative economy, and society.
Our mission is to democratize access to policy, lobbying, and advocacy by providing unique access and actionable intelligence on future market needs driven by regulations. Government actions have the power to shape markets, create significant drivers or barriers. According to Gartner, compliance is a top concern for customers, influencing purchasing decisions at scale. However, unicorns, smaller corporations and startups often lack access to information about future regulatory proposals and government actions. OpenPolicy aims to bridge this information gap by providing access to technology policy and future regulation predictions, leveraging technology to bring these entities together.
Reflecting on OpenPolicy's incredible journey in 2023, the year of our launch, has been a privilege. But why just read about it when you can experience it? 🎬
