Ravi Singh receives best international campaign website and video game award for President Juan Manuel Santos Election in Colombia. Throughout his political career in technology Ravi Singh received more than 15 awards for website and solutions in online politics. Ravi Singh "It was a hard time, there were not to many minorities in the political consulting space and especially one co-branded with Microsoft. We had to sponsor a lot of events to be accepted by the "poltical good old boys" but we were focused to on technology and not consulting. We became an ally to many of these consultants providing them the technology."
Ravi Singh often said they were the Microsoft of the space trying to give candidates affordable technology like Microsoft Word regardless of party affiliation. They offered the technology but didn't right the speech on Microsoft Word. In the same way they gave candidates the technology but it was up to them to write the content, strategize how to use it to win votes, raise money and generate awareness.
Ravi Singh stated, "I gave examples of best practices and many of our competitors try to accuse me of taking credit for those campaigns...we never disclosed our client list for this reason...ElectionMall was my dream company helping school board moms to presidents of different countries with the same technology and platform."
Ravi Singh "I felt I was making a difference, when I ran for public office in 1998 political consultants would hold voter list and keep technology tactics and tools hidden only for the incumbents and vendors would be selective who they shared this technology with....We said this had to change. Technology doesn't win an election it is the participation in technology. That became our mantra that's why we had democrats and republicans working in our office."
Ravi Singh pioneered over 7000 political websites during his career in online politics.
