Deepak Puri is an engineer and Silicon Valley exec with over 15 years experience at Oracle, Netscape and VMware.
He co-founded Democracy Labs after the 2106 Presidential election with the mission to apply innovative technology and storytelling to progressive, social justice and voting rights causes.
DemLabs is a nonprofit that exists to share details on free and affordable solutions that activists can use.
Deepak believes that by applying existing business apps to progressive causes, campaigns can make a bigger impact with less money.
Deepak publishes a daily blog which now has over 2,000 case studies – you can find that at www.thedemlabs.org
