PolicyMic is a platform to engage millennials in high quality debate around news and current events. Think Twitter meets the Economist.


Founded: 2017
Employees: 6


Problem: News websites fail to engage millennials aged 18-29. Online news lacks is too partisan. It’s not fun, engaging, or interactive. Millennials spend 10x as much time on online social networks as they do reading the news online. Solution: is an engaging platform that uses a currency-based game to generate high-quality user-generated content. The 2012 elections have contributed to 100% month-over-month growth to date.
