What we do

Apolitical is the first global platform for government that helps public servants find the ideas, experts and partners they need to solve the hardest challenges facing our societies. Our mission is to help make governments work better for citizens everywhere.

The need to seek solutions across borders in government has never been greater. Yet public servants still often google or phone a friend to find policy ideas that affect millions of lives. Apolitical was created to change this.

We think it’s essential to highlight what's working in government and to celebrate the committed public servants - unsung heroes - behind innovations.

Apolitical's publicly available policy stories reach tens of millions of people. Its private network is used by thousands of public servants in 140+ countries including mayors and ministers. Our partners include the World Bank, the UK Cabinet Office and the World Economic Forum.

We were named one of the world’s 100 most disruptive companies in 2017 by Disrupt100 and one of Fast Company's 10 Most Innovative Companies in Social Good in 2018.
