2004: In February of 2004, we began building the tools that we would eventually offer to Democrats and Progressives. By Nov of that year, we launched version 1 of the BlueUtopia campaign system, the first cloud-based software to serve the political market and one of the first cloud-based software systems of any kind for any market. In fact, the most common question we got in those first years was 'why would I rent software'? It would be several years before 'cloud' even became common vernacular.
2006: We add our first non-founder employees with a growth spurt of 5 new employees.
2009: We surpass 200 subscribers in 8 states.
2012: We add our first non-human employee, Walter and reached 350 subscribers.
2014: We add our first international client from Australia. On Election Day 2014 our clients' win percentage was over 86%.
2016: We added our first Canadian clients and surpassed 500 subscribers.
2019: Introduced DataFeeds into the platform, taking the first step toward our vision of building an AI-enabled campaign system.
From day one, our goal was to deliver a powerful system to Democratic political campaigns and Progressive non-profits -- one that could make a real difference on Election Day. That starts with software that is extremely easy to use -- that any person at any level of expertise could just log on and use without weeks of training. Our constant refrain: Making software is easy. Making software that is easy to use takes painstaking attention and effort.
