Echo Ridge is pioneering the era of citizen-driven politics. Combining the unifying capabilities of social networking with the efficacy of the crowd, Echo Ridge is providing Americans with an ecosystem that counters the influence of big-money in politics. Echo Ridge will take individuals beyond hashtag activism, allowing for real change, driven by real people.
NationCrowd is Echo Ridge’s flagship platform and is built from the ground up to empower Americans to have the same tools and influence that big money wields with both state and federal political issues. It does this by providing three modules that allow people to, first, find likeminded supporters who share the same passion for a specific political cause. We call this “CauseWork”. Second, we provide a platform for these newly created causes to legally fundraise for their political issue. This is important, because platforms like GoFundMe aren’t able to legally raise funds for political activism. This part of the platform is called “CauseFund”. Lastly, we enable these newly funded political causes to tap into the political professionals who can help them turn their issues into law. This open marketplace is called “CauseSource” and lets individual activists bring their causes across the finish line.
