Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 21, 2010
Political Boost, the provider of software products and services to political campaigns, announced today that they have joined Baltimore City’s technology incubator, Emerging Technology Centers (ETC).
Political Boost offers a comprehensive and streamlined communications portal for political candidates. The bundled services include IVR polls & surveys, canvassing tools, constituent contact management software, and much more.
"Every year hundreds of thousands of people file with local and state boards of elections to run for public office," says Kent V. Blake, Director of Business Development. "The vast majority of candidates are severely under-served due to their limited budgets."
Blake continues, "Our new self-service portal is aimed at providing those candidates the same array of communications tools and constituent management software as larger campaigns, at prices they can afford."
"We're excited that Political Boost has joined our incubation program," notes Ann Lansinger, President of ETC. "The entrepreneurial environment at the ETC is one that helps new companies like Political Boost to move ahead as far and as fast as possible."
Political Boosts currently focuses on the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia in the 2010 election cycle. The company was recently selected by the Maryland Democratic Party to provide its services to the 2010 Coordinated Campaign.
