This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. Proximity, tech solutions for political campaigns, believes in helping good leaders become great candidates. They do this by providing tools and resources to improve election literacy, enhance political campaign innovation and foster equitable access and pathways to civic leadership. CEO Becki Wright joins us with more.

Becki Wright:

There are over half a million elected offices in the US today, and depending on race level, anywhere from 2 to 10 candidates run for each seat. Proximity is professionalizing and revolutionizing the way political campaigns are run and won.

Whether left of center or right of center, we all agree far more than our election cycle would have us believe. Our own Governor reminds us: we need to disagree better. And we need candidates who are representative of you and me. 

But the problem exists that it’s difficult to start a political campaign, and it’s difficult to finish running that campaign well. 

I created Proximity to bring politics back to the people. Built to innovate the way campaigns are run and won, Proximity helps good leaders become great candidates with modern, compliant, integrated software for political campaigns. We democratize democracy, one campaign at a time. Learn more at
