October 23, 2020  • Aspen Global Leadership Network

Imagine a future where voting could be as easy as sending a text. Central America Leadership Initiative fellow Jorge Garcia is making that future a reality. Jorge is a tech innovator and entrepreneur. As co-founder and chief technology officer of Hello Iconic, an app development and design studio, he has worked with Fortune 500 companies and startups alike creating apps loved by millions of users across the globe. Now, he’s working on a new venture called Ballotted, a simple, secure, fully auditable, and legally defensible e-voting platform that people can trust. Learn more Jorge and his venture in our conversation below.

Learn more about the journey behind creating Ballotted and what it has meant for Jorge’s leadership on a new podcast from the AGLN: The Value of Leadership ?. He shares what led him to creating the platform and how activating his own values has influenced his actions – especially in the face of unique challenges that come with operating in the political space.
