Higher Ground Labs kicked off our Democratic National Convention programming today with a standout panel on the future of political technology. Convening a panel of experts, including technology startup founders and top digital campaign strategists, HGL moderated a conversation on the rapid changes in the tech space throughout 2020.

Our panelists spoke on the most exciting innovations of 2020, how issues such as COVID and cybersecurity have impacted campaign and political tech security, best practices in digital organizing, and offered advice for founders looking to enter the space. Speaking from their own experiences as key players, panelists also detailed how they have shifted their own tech and campaign playbook to adapt to the new COVID environment. 

We would like to thank our panelists for joining us and offering their unique insights. We have our work cut out for us! The Higher Ground Labs team is proud to work with passionate and innovative founders, practitioners, and strategists. This discussion served as a reminder of all the work left to do in 2021 and beyond.
