About Us

Apolitical is the first global platform for government, helping public servants find the ideas, experts, and partners they need to solve the hardest challenges facing our societies. Apolitical is used by public servants in more than 130 countries including by mayors, ministers, and former heads of state. Its partners include the World Bank, the UK Cabinet Office, Government of Canada, and the World Economic Forum. It was named one of the World’s 100 Most Disruptive Companies in 2017 by Disrupt 100.

“Apolitical brings together public servants and the best ideas in government in more than 130 countries in a fun and easy way by harnessing the best of consumer tech. With sleek design and machine learning, we scour the world for smart ideas and inspire public sector innovators to solve society’s most critical problems. And there’s a huge amount at stake. The average OECD government spends more than 40% of its GDP on government. We help governments spend that more effectively and with better outcomes for citizens. The B Corporation certification helps us demonstrate that it is possible to build a business while remaining focussed on social impact,” said Lisa Witter, Co-Founder and Executive Chairwoman.

Apolitical received the B Corporation certification 21st June 2018. This prestigious designation is awarded to companies who use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. The CEO Robyn Scott commented that "Apolitical is proud to have received the B Corporation certification. We consider it an important standard and signal of values that all companies working with governments should try to reach...Time and time again we hear from public servants how they want to work with more companies that are committed to social good. We see this certification as not only the right thing to do but good for our bottom line.”
