The Agile Movement

Leading a small team in the development of Simpolfy—we engaged in agile development.

Working sprint-by-sprint using scrum methodology, our decision making was empowered by the analysis of live real-world results.

Combining extensive user research with quantitative analysis, we continually tested our hypotheses against hard data, driving the best possible outcomes. By taking this approach we iterated into a highly useable and successful political action platform utilized by thousands of citizens. issue

Starting up Simpolfy

Founded by myself, Sanjaya Punyasena and Spencer Rogers—we were fortunate enough to quickly achieve funding from multiple sources and won entry into renowned startup acceleration programs in both Seattle, WA and San Francisco, CA.

Simpolfy was ignited by a successful fundraising campaign of over $35,000 on crowdfunding platform

Shortly after we were invited to join the Fledge program. Along with providing a full incubation program they invested $17,000 in capital.
