Naeim Khanjani is the CEO and co-founder of Electo, a civic technology company built to democratize how we get informed. Naeim came to the United States as a refugee to pursue a better, free and resolute life. After experiencing firsthand how difficult it was to stay informed of the divisiveness and biases prevalent in the media, Naeim and his wife Soraya founded Electo in 2019. Valuing the precious opportunity of becoming an American, he has put careful thought into every element of Electo to ensure that it would remain unbiased, nonpartisan, and easy to use. Before Electo, Naeim worked as a financial consultant in New York and at a leading think tank based in Washington, D.C. Naeim now lives in Washington, DC, where Electo is headquartered.
