LEAD INVESTOR
The team at Shire has an extraordinary vision for a product that will help solve a challenge that most campaigns and nonprofits face: Managing volunteers remotely is very hard. Crucially, it’s a problem they’ve experienced firsthand, which has allowed them to envision a powerful and innovative solution. Remote organizing is only going to become more important in the years to come. We believe that Shire has a very good chance to build a product that plays a key role in facilitating remote organizing and ensuring that it's accessible to everyone. Samantha has put together an impressive team with the skills, experience and tenacity to build something special. We’re thrilled to be supporting this exciting project and can’t wait to see how much more political campaigns and nonprofits are able to accomplish with Shire’s help.

Our Team

As a federal campaign manager during the pandemic, I faced the problems of organizing remotely firsthand. Political tech hasn't caught up. This means that progressives and Democrats will continue to lose campaigns we could otherwise win. Volunteers make all the difference, and Shire will bring more to the fight than ever.
