AgreeList project traces back to a random encounter of the two founders Hector and Emilie... thanks to Airbnb! Hector was renting a room in Emilie's flatshare in London, and they quickly discovered that they were both passionated by the empowerment technology endows to individuals in changing the world.
Idealist enough to believe they could have a meaningful impact, they also realized that they had very complementary skills to embark together in a new venture. Hector, a software engineer by profession, had already founded a startup and was involved in participatory democracy initiatives. Emilie, a former investment banker, had recently reconnected with her political sciences academic background with a second graduate degree in social sciences.
After endless debates on how to improve the quality of public debate as well as the accountability of opinion leaders, the AgreeList project was born with an ambitious mission: increase the quality of decision making
AgreeList wants to improve decision making by developing a tool which:
- Gathers and organizes trackable opinions by storing them in a unique database, promoting constructive debates
- Favors plurality of opinions fighting the polarization of opinions, including those little supported by traditional medias
- Shows in real time what people think and why, on both sides of controversial topics
