Jake Sandler, CEO and Founder of ChangeRoots is guest on this episode of DC Entrepreneur. ChangeRoots is an app designed to help build a post-partisan political system in the United States. The app provides easy access to information about politicians, insights into their behavior, and allows users to easily provide positive or negative feedback through their campaign contributions. The platform also clearly identifies which politicians’ behaviors are partisan or post-partisan. Their mission is to help root out toxic partisanship by using micro-donations to reward leaders with integrity and fire self-interested partisans, equip the public to influence politicians to prioritize wellbeing over political loyalty.
**UPDATE @ 1:30 pm on 6/26/2020: ChangeRoots will be shutting down. In an email statement from Jake: "We are returning investors 100% of the money they've put into this latest round and dissolving ChangeRoots on July 3rd. It's been a beautiful journey. We are deeply grateful for all those who believed in us and supported us."
