Damola Ogundipe is the Co-Founder and CEO of Plural (formerly Civic Eagle), which creates cutting-edge software to make it easy for public policy data to be discoverable, interpretable, and collaborative. Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Damola and his family immigrated to the US when he was six years old. From a young age, Damola was interested in global perspectives, politics, and how the world is governed. Frustrated by the lack of civic engagement in the US, Damola and his co-founders created Civic Eagle, leveraging public-access data to create easy ways for global citizens to engage and express their opinions on how they want to be governed.
