The PolicyMogul Story
We create software to help public affairs professionals and parliamentarians manage their work and collaborate together.
How it started
The idea for PolicyMogul came from a badly-written clause in the Anti-Social Behaviour Bill. It would have prevented members of The Salvation Army from gathering in the streets. The Ramblers’ Association was campaigning on exactly the same issue, but the two organisations found each other only by chance. They eventually worked together to help get the 2014 Anti-Social, Crime and Policing Act passed.
It became apparent there was a gap that needed to be filled, leading to the idea of enabling disparate organisations to collaborate. PolicyMogul’s other features followed on naturally.
There is a clear requirement to make the industry of lobbying more transparent. PolicyMogul will help all organisations involved in public affairs and parliamentarians alike.
Elliot Robinson, Founder of PolicyMogul
Three generations in the making
In 1966 Reg Robinson created the industry of parliamentary monitoring, for which he was awarded an OBE. Twenty years later, his son Julian took the business online with ParliamentToday, now one of the leading monitoring agencies in the UK. Elliot Robinson, Julian’s son, founded PolicyMogul in 2018.
Elliot had previously been instrumental in shaking up the customer service industry with Zendesk, helping it grow from a small startup to a public company. PolicyMogul is the coming together of his experience in the software-as-a-service industry and his family background in parliamentary and government affairs.
