Misha is the founder of Effective Government California. He believes government is a vitally important institution, and that our responsibility as citizens is to help improve it.

Today Misha will make the case that startup skills are partially transferable into the political and policy domain and encourages you to consider it when it's the right time. And perhaps some issues will be better served, better impacted through advocacy, politics and policy than through startups.

“Let's look at the landscape and understand whether there are existing organizations that we can just partner with, because there's great people there and great, they already have a cadence of performance and out driving outcomes, or whether there needs to be something new.” - Misha Chellam

Today on Startups for Good we cover:

  • Why should startups care about politics
  • Changing minds about money in politics
  • Goals for a new advocacy organization
  • Challenges when building a political startup
