Our mission since 2014

To connect legislative data around the world.

At Statehill, our objective is to build tools that enable a more productive and navigable legislative process, empowering businesses and organizations to analyze the issues and position resources effectively through integrated technology and data. Our growing datasets currently include legislative information from the European Union, United Kingdom, France, Germany, US Congress and all 50 US states.

Our automated process involves ingesting as much data as possible, normalizing it, presenting the information in complete, understandable formats, and layering the data with a suite of productivity and analytical tools available within the Statehill application. The result—no more digging through endless webpages and documents to find the information you’re looking for. From bills, legislators, and committees, to votes, amendments, schedules, and reports, we remove the tedious work and make it all readily accessible and actionable in one place.

We strive to develop a platform that is accessible, yet powerful—a borderless, seamless user experience focused on thoughtful design and comprehensive data to add the maximum value to client operations. With a commitment to creating an industry leading platform, we’re reworking the relationship between governments, influencers, and constituents, building tools to shape the future of legislative affairs.

On 3rd July, 2018 – Statehill announced the acquisition of its industry leading technological platform by POLITICO Europe, a joint venture between POLITICO and Axel Springer. Working with Statehill founders, POLITICO will launch a new platform, Pro Intelligence, combining world-class journalism with data and technology. Development is underway to integrate Statehill technology with POLITICO Pro news services, with the Pro Intelligence platform launching this fall. To register for an exclusive preview of the new Pro Intelligence Platform, or for more information, visit the POLITICO Pro website.

The founders

Or more accurately, the Karls (as we share the same name). Our four years as a team have been spent building a few software services, flying around the world pitching clients and playing golf, and working our hardest to disrupt the political-tech industry.

Roos, age 24, originally from Stockholm, has been hammering the keyboard for the past 10 years writing code and building intricate online tools. Stints as CTO at an ecommerce startup, and lead developer at a big data marketing optimization company led to founding Statehill in late 2014. Roos expertly handles product development and design.

Bjelland, age 28, hailing from Conrad, Montana, grew up on a farm a long ways from the city. A curious and creative thinker, Bjelland works with business and product strategy, as well as market development and digital communications.
