SPEAKEASY WINS BEST OVERALL AND BEST STARTUP (TECH) AT NETROOTS NATION

St. Louis – SpeakEasy Political, a new political/tech startup that makes it faster and easier for campaigns to move direct mail, took home top honors at Netroots Nation on Saturday. SpeakEasy won both Best Overall and Best StartUp (Tech) at the New Tools Showcase. 17 startups and political tech companies made it to the final competition. Voting was live, by attendees.

“We’re so glad people are recognizing the value here – the quality of our democracy depends on everyone being able to compete,” said Eric Jaye, SpeakEasy’s cofounder. “SpeakEasy lowers the barrier for entry by combining do-it-yourself mail templates with high-quality voter targeting. Now a candidate or cause can get a mailer out the door in a matter of hours, not weeks – and pay about 20-40% less for it.”

SpeakEasy was founded in 2015 by Eric Jaye, Bergen Kenny and Danielle Winterhalter. The company is rare both because it upends the current consultant-based model of political mail, and because a majority of its founders are women.

“We’re proud to feature the very best political technologies and congratulations to SpeakEasy Political for a service that helps democratize political campaigning,” said Raven Brooks, Executive Director of Netroots Foundation and Netroots Nation.

“It used to be that someone running in a down-ballot race, like School Board or City Council, couldn’t afford a high-quality mailer or door hanger,” said Danielle Winterhalter, SpeakEasy’s Director of Strategic Partnerships. “They were priced out of the democratic process. Paying a consultant was out of the question – agency fees and custom graphic design made pieces unaffordable. SpeakEasy solves that problem by combining design templates with the same voter targeting tools that Presidential campaigns use. It’s one-stop shopping for campaigns looking to get their message out.”

Although it’s been around for less than a year, SpeakEasy is battle tested. Dozens of candidates and groups have used SpeakEasy – from the LA County Labor Federation to the Oregon House Democrats to individual candidates from California to North Carolina.
