Founder and CEO, Organizer
Ralph Garvin, Jr is the founder and CEO of Organizer, which makes the nation’s most powerful set of mobile cloud-based tools for large-scale, face-to-face, community outreach; whether it’s informing a community of their healthcare choices or surveying residence of a hurricane damaged neighborhood. A computer scientist turned Obama campaign staffer, Ralph combined his field experience with his expertise in artificial intelligence and system design to code the original Organizer system in 2010 and now leads the company’s product and strategic vision. Ralph launched his first startup in 1999 while a sophomore at Stanford University and is now dedicated to the exciting intersection of technology and social activism and how such an intersection can improve society.
