Convening Perspectives

We bring together a diverse network to share expertise and build connections. Through programs like our annual Summit, we create opportunities for collaboration and learning, and share resources with our community through Tools for Change.

Tools for Change

NMV is filling a critical gap in the civic tech ecosystem, pooling money and knowledge to support risk-takers and innovators at the early stage, and building bridges between techies and political organizers.

The NMV Summit is the one event I will not miss. It’s jam packed with great programming and lots of networking. New Media Ventures has built something special. I don't know of another investment group like them.

Jennifer Brandel

CEO and Co-Founder, Hearken

We’re living through an exceptional time. Old institutions are collapsing, citizens are reclaiming power, and bottom-up movements are on the rise. NMV spotted that trend early. If you’re interested in the next big thing in civic engagement, keep an eye on their portfolio.
