Start-up support example


Currently part of the CivicPower association

Civic tech start-up: Creator of a mobile app and a web platform connecting citizens with members of the Assemblée Nationale to express opinions on legislative bills currently under debate.

Country: France

From prototype mobile app to widely used civic tech platform

Start-up created around prototype mobile app by Erik de Boisgrollier in 2020 under the name todayIvote.
The collaboration with Pragma Communication was initiated via overlapping projects.
In 2021 Pragma Communication advised and supported todayIvote in its incubator application process.
As a result, in Fall 2021 todayIvote became nosLois and was awarded one year incubator funding at Sciences Po Paris to further develop its civic tech app and to enhance its business strategy. The app reached over 100,000 enrolled users.
In 2022 nosLois reached over 250,000 users and merged with the CivicPower association. That year alone, over 2,000,000 citizens opinions on upcoming laws were conveyed to parliamentarians via the app.
