After CEO Tim Hwang’s designation on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, a $10 million Series C and the move to a new office, here’s yet some more good news for the D.C.-based civic tech startup. FiscalNote announced on Monday that it has been named among this year’s 30 “Technology Pioneers” by the World Economic Forum.

FiscalNote, founded in 2013, has created a “government relationship management system” that makes regulatory information accessible and searchable for users and even leverages data to predict policy outcomes.

According to a press release this award will give FiscalNote access to an “influential worldwide business and political network.” The startup will also take part in some of the World Economic Forum’s meetings, including the “Annual Meeting of the New Champions” which is being held now in Tianjin, China, and the big annual Davos meeting in 2017.

This new distinction places FiscalNote among a class of other innovative companies like Google (listed in 2001), Kickstarter (2011), Airbnb (2013) and Slack (also a 2016 company).

“FiscalNote is among those companies that help shape the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work and relate to one another,” Fulvia Montresor, head of Technology Pioneers at the World Economic Forum, said in a statement. “Through the platform of the World Economic Forum, it will be able to scale and share its technology and achieve a larger impact.”

Though Technology Pioneers come from all over the world, 70 percent of the listed companies are based in the U.S. A World Economic Forum press release calls this “a sign of the country’s continued strength in innovation.”
