Involved

History

Co-founders Jacob Dansey, Caleb McDermott, and John Knollmeyer met at Boston University as undergraduates. With a vision of building a bridge between representatives and the people they represent, they set out to create Involved. Since the team’s founding in February, 2017, Involved has been used nationally by State Representatives, City Councillors, Congressional candidates and more.

Involved is an accessible, private, and secure software designed to help representatives, advocacy organizations, and academic institutions engage their community and grow their reach.
