Our Vision: Democracy and Government That Work

Catalyzing Business Leadership.

Accelerating Change.

At the core of our mission is a deep commitment to helping business leaders play a greater role in civic life. As the only business alliance dedicated exclusively to improving government, Business for America is purpose-built to help business leaders make an impact.

We offer our members opportunities to advance proven solutions by making the business case for change. And we provide a chance to advance innovative new technology solutions to make government work better and safeguard democracy.

Public Policy Solutions

We are advancing proven policy solutions and innovative new approaches at the national, state, and local levels.

Elections that are secure, accessible, and offer meaningful choices.

Policymaking that is civil, data-driven, and focused on the public interest.

Government that is transparent, efficient, and serves citizens well.

Technology for 21st Century Government

Modern technologies and data science are making government more efficient, effective, and accountable. Our focus includes election integrity, campaign disclosure, data-driven policymaking, and advanced technologies like blockchain and AI.

In 2018, we’re investigating and producing a report on the top technologies to increase transparency and accountability throughout government.

Media and Events to Shape the Debate

Business for America provides a nonpartisan forum for leaders to come together, exchange ideas, and identify solutions to some of our country’s most fundamental challenges.

We’re fostering civic leadership and sparking new conversations on the future of our democracy, our economy, capitalism, and technology.

  • “In order to help ensure a healthy, competitive business climate, our elections must be fair, secure, and accessible. The bipartisan Secure Elections Act is a commonsense step towards rebuilding trust in our elections. I encourage Congress to pass it quickly.”

    President & CEO, Earth Friendly Products

  • Among 32 of the world’s most developed democratic countries, the U.S. sadly ranks 26th for voter turnout. One of the most important steps we can take is to boost voters’ confidence that their voices will be heard and their votes will be counted accurately and securely. Governor Tom Wolf’s administration is working hard to achieve these goals, and engagement from the business community can help us bridge divides and advocate for pragmatic solutions that will advance democracy for all Pennsylvanians.”
