About us

Making local governments more transparent

Our Approach & Mission

At our core, we make local governments more transparent. The best way to achieve this is to monitor local government agendas for specific issues with regularity and accuracy.

  • There are too many municipal websites to manually monitor.
  • Data curation is tedious and doesn’t inspire action.
  • Relying on the media, your colleagues, or peers results in learning about issues when it’s too late.

That’s why we created Agenda Discovery. We’ve automated the search process by creating a customized government tracking tool. Our software sends relevant alerts straight to your Inbox via customized keyword monitoring. Staying on top of the issues that impact your life and business has never been easier.
