Helm is on a mission to understand the science of civic life.


We build data, tools, and software for pro-democracy organizers. 

Our products help advocates build, launch, and grow civic communities. Our platform makes these insights available at scale to give everyone civic superpowers. Our researchers, campaigners, and engineers generate and analyze data to unpack the beliefs and motivations that drive human civic behavior. We deliver intelligence to operators and funders toward a vision of full participation.


Helm currently supports 60+ customers across the country, enabling a cross-partisan, coalition-based approach to local politics and activation. In 2022, we are actively convening funders and operators in the pro-democracy movement and seeking select partner collaborations across the civic engagement issue landscape.
