Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente receives 500k investment from Omidyar Network

Omidyar Network intends to support Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente with a grant of up to $500k over three years.

The Chilean nonprofit creates technology platforms, including websites and mobile applications, to provide citizens access to easy-to-use, graphical information about their government. Citizens can learn about what issues will be debated in parliament, access the profiles and voting records of elected officials and learn about the demographic make up of the legislature. Future plans include creating online tools to learn about money’s influence in politics and government, as well as expansion to other Latin America countries.
