Nduka NGoal: A unified way for everyday constituents to financially pool behind a congressional candidate in social, more transparent way -- thereby reforming the way campaigns are financed.
Summary: Our mobile app leverages the crowd-funding model to reinvent campaign finance as a social event. Urban Borough engages millennials and empowers them to fund a candidate they believe in. It also reforms the way campaigns are financed as individuals seeking political office can be less reliant on corporate donors, who usually want something in return.
