Cambridge Start-up wins national prize for online policy platform

A team of five Cambridge students has come out on top in this year’s Silicon Valley Comes to the UK (SVC2UK) competition, with a national prize for their website, an online, intuitive platform to help the world make sense of policy. With a user-friendly interface, aims to be the world’s most comprehensive platform fully dedicated to public policy, making policy more transparent and easily accessible.

Following a short pitch by political science and economics students Nathan Boublil and Agastya Muthanna, the full founding team behind ProjectPolicy was formed during the Cambridge Startup Weekend on 11 November. After an intensive few days, ProjectPolicy was announced as the winning project and was invited to the Grand Finale of Silicon Valley Comes 2 UK at the Google Campus in East London. The Cambridge team competed against startups from across the country and was eventually named as the overall UK winner, with the prize being an all-expenses trip to Silicon Valley in January, sponsored by Google.

Nathan Boublil, co-founder of ProjectPolicy, commented: “Winning these two prizes successvely has been an important external validation of the project’s potential and a great conclusion to a collective effort. We are now looking forward to taking ProjectPolicy to the next stage. We are very focused on building the technical platform, with a private trial planned early 2013 to be carried out in conjunction with CUSPE.”

To help them build this innovative platform, the ProjectPolicy team is interested in connecting with like-minded policymakers and researchers from around the world. If you are interested in speaking with the team, please do not hesitate to reach out to:
