FiscalNote Accelerates Global Expansion Plans; Adds Australia, New Zealand To Industry’s Only GRM Platform

Expansion Schedule Now Includes Major Markets In North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific

WASHINGTON--()--FiscalNote, the Washington DC-based company that dramatically improves the way organizations engage with government, today announced a comprehensive global expansion and initial data sets for the first two countries outside the United States. The move comes three months after the company originally announced it would add European data sets to its industry-leading Government Relationship Management (GRM) platform in 2017.

Data for Federal legislation in Australia and New Zealand is live now in beta release and supported by FiscalNote’s custom advisory services. Users will be able to search and filter the new data sets, with the full suite of data and workflow features available at official launch. Access to the platform is granted to enterprises globally and across internal organizations.

“Interest in our platform continues to exceed our expectations. We’ve been welcoming global clients across Asia Pacific for the last several months,” said FiscalNote CEO Tim Hwang. “We’re moving quickly to add data and advisory services for the major markets outside the U.S. that our customers care most about.”

"FiscalNote's platform creates an unprecedented step change in the evolution of governmental transparency and tech innovation,” said Sydney-based Perle Ventures Managing Director Michael An. “We're excited to be a part of this journey.”

The company has accepted strategic investments from Renren (China), Temasek (Singapore), and MoneyToday (South Korea).

Accelerated beta releases are now expected this year in dozens of additional countries in North America, South America, Europe and Africa
