If you work in Marketing, Sales, or Human Resources, you probably use software designed to make your work easier and more impactful. If you work in Public Affairs, you’ve been left to use software built with someone else in mind. Not anymore. We built Quorum as an integrated public affairs software platform from the ground up. With Quorum, you get one platform, one company, one place for stakeholder engagement, legislative tracking, and grassroots advocacy.
Our co-founders Alex Wirth and Jonathan Marks started Quorum out of their dorm room. Alex wanted to address the problems he encountered while running an advocacy campaign on Capitol Hill, and Jonathan used his experience in computational biochemistry to find a solution. What started as an algorithm to figure out who members of Congress worked with most frequently has evolved into a fully integrated software platform across seven products that offers solutions in stakeholder engagement, legislative tracking, and grassroots advocacy.
We have never raised a single dollar of venture capital funding, meaning we only succeed if our clients succeed. Our products are a direct reflection of the feedback we get from clients and our commitment to build an integrated platform that is indispensable to all users.
Quorum is headquartered in downtown Washington D.C., with an international office in Brussels. Our team is comprised of former Hill staffers, campaign vets, engineers, and everyone in between—including marathon runners, blacksmiths, chefs, and more.
At Quorum, diversity and inclusion means trust and progress. Trust because people who trust one another grow with one another and progress because the work is never done.
