Get to Know Pro

Get to know the mission, values and people behind POLITICO Pro. 

 

 

Our mission is to empower professionals on the front lines of policy with the intelligence and resources they need to stay one step ahead.

The Evolution of POLITICO Pro

POLITICO Pro launched in 2011 with three policy areas. Today, thousands of policy teams rely on Pro’s news, analysis and tools to complete their policy work.

The Trusted Source For Policy News

In February of 2011, POLITICO Pro launched with three policy areas: healthcare, technology and energy. Our original mission was to provide readers real-time intelligence on the politics, process and personalities involved in policy.

We invested in our reporters and built an incredible team of journalists who are experts in their field. From this foundation, we built today's newsroom of over 100 policy-specific reporters.

Policy Infographics & Explainers

DataPoint launched in 2016 with the mission of helping our subscribers to not only conceptualize complex policy issues and regulatory processes, but also provide them with quick ways to explain this information to organization members, clients and colleagues.

Integration of Legislative Tracking

The launch of Legislative Compass, the first in our suite of policy tracking tools, kick-started the progression of POLITICO Pro from a series of newsletters and infographics to a full-service policy platform and digital workspace for policy professionals. 

Built to help policy pros track legislation as it progresses through Congress and state legislatures, Legislative Compass changed the game.
