Legal analytics — why didn’t you think of that one? Tim Hwang did, and he figured out how to help tons of businesses and government agencies work way better when it comes to the law. Tim’s relentless start-up’ering keeps him busy, and he finds himself serving on boards, advisory councils, and directly with programs helping to infuse a dynamic sense of tech entrepreneurship into school curricula and classrooms in Washington, D.C.
Tim is currently the Founder and CEO of FiscalNote, a Government Relationship Management platform that uses AI, analytics, and natural language processing to help global organizations take control of their government risk and automate the law. The global company with offices across DC, NYC, Seoul, and the EU has now grown to become the largest privately-held company in the legal analytics space and powers 1,300 of the world’s largest and most influential law firms, legal departments, and governments in creating a more open and transparent society through data. With Hwang’s technology and capital partners from the likes of Mark Cuban, Jerry Yang, Steve Case, NEA, Renren and others, FiscalNote is revolutionizing access to legislation, regulations, and court cases for organizations around the world.
Prior to founding FiscalNote, Hwang started his career in politics in the Obama ’08 campaign, assisting in the election and transition of the first Obama Administration. He was elected to the Montgomery County Board of Education a year later, overseeing a budget of over $4 billion for 22,000 public employees. Tim also served as the President of the 750,000-member National Youth Association and the Founder of Operation Fly, Inc. – a national 501(c)(3) organization that served inner-city children in underprivileged areas around the country.
Tim was profiled in Forbes 30 Under 30, Inc. 30 Under 30, CNN’s Top 10 Startups, Business Insider’s Top 25 Hottest Startups, and many others.
