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 policy intelligence 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.
A New Workspace for Policy Professionals
In 2020 POLITICO Pro was overhauled to give policy professionals a more intuitive, smart, and data-driven experience that delivers personalized content, recommendations, and intel tailored to what pros need, when they need it.
