About the Innovators Policy Council

The Developers Alliance is proud to represent companies of all sizes, in more than 35 countries, working in more than a dozen industries. The policy goals of software powered companies large and small are often closely aligned, but the disparity in resources and often limits access and influence.

To give small businesses and early stage companies a voice on policy issues, and to ensure the Alliance is an authentic voice for the industry as a whole, we are launching an Innovators Policy Council (IPC). The IPC will be both the foundation of Alliance policy setting and execution. Our goal is to create and empower a global network of small and midsized companies contributing to both the Alliance policy agenda and specific issue advocacy.



How it Works

Innovators Policy Council participants opt into the network and are assigned to issue groups based on their interest and experience. The IPC is led by an appointed Chair and Vice Chair (one for each U.S. and European participants) that help to prioritize issues and organize engagement.

The U.S. and European IPC leadership and a startup member from each region also serve on the their respective Policy Steering Committees to ensure our policy agenda and objectives serve the best interests of smaller companies and our members.


Our membership includes more than 100 small companies and a global developer network of nearly 75,000. Associate and startup members are eligible and encouraged to actively participate in the Innovators Policy Council.
