Quorum is Acquiring Policy Tech Company Capitol Canary

Today, there’s a new shakeup on the DMV policy and public affairs tech scene, thanks to a rather noteworthy acquisition.

DC-based Quorum, a public affairs software platform, announced that it has acquired Arlington, Virginia-based Capitol Canary (formerly Phone2Action). By combining the companies, Quorum hopes to establish a huge, fully-integrated software company in the grassroots space of DC.

Quorum CEO Alex Wirth said that the two teams will combine and the companies will operate as a single entity under the Quorum brand going forward. All in all, the new Quorum will have 336 team members, serve a combined 2,000 customers and maintain a headquarters in DC. The financial terms of the deal are not being released.
