Company Summary

CrowdHall is a venue for crowd-sourced town halls where anyone can create and host a town hall with their audience. The audience can post questions and comments and then peer-vote for the content they want to see a response to, resulting in a manageable and democratic list of top questions and comments crowd-sourced from the audience. This lets high-profile people and organizations be accessible and responsive to audiences of any size.
