They say those who don’t conform to society come up with the most significant changes to the world. FiNC founder Travis Misurell, a neurodivergent and atypical thinker, saw how backward and contradictory our political systems were and felt compelled to be part of the solution.
Armed with a BA in Psychology and over a decade of experience in Operations and Process Management, Travis developed tools to solve the increasing partisan divide, introducing the concept of Digital Politics.
Travis founded the Future is Now Coalition (FiNC) using his unique perspective, passion for transparency, and the need to educate and empower Americans. Soon after, he found over 50 people who felt the same and were willing to volunteer their time to bring FiNC, Digital Democracy, and the FiNC Research Hub to life.
