The current voting system is ripe for disruption

With an innovative mind and entrepreneurial blood racing through his veins, Votem CEO Pete Martin is a natural candidate for sparking a revolution.

The idea for Votem sprouted back in 2014. Pete Martin had just sold his consulting business and in contemplating what to do next, attended a conference hosted by XPrize Founder Peter Diamandis.

Sitting with 200 other CEOs and entrepreneurs, Pete and his peers were asked to come up with a ‘moonshot impact statement’ that would define their life’s work and become their legacy. More specifically, the attendees were asked to come up with an idea that would positively impact a billion people. Putting pen to paper, Pete unconsciously wrote down:“mobile voting.”

These two words have since become his obsession and intended life legacy.

And so, Votem was born.

Our mission is to have 1 billion people around the world vote through the Votem platform using their mobile device by 2025.
