Napster co-founder and early Facebook president Sean Parker is stepping in as CEO of Brigade Media, a new startup that wants to get Americans more involved with politics, reports Politico. Parker has invested over $9 million in Brigade, which has reportedly received investments of unknown sizes from two other big Silicon Valley investors as well. The startup will apparently focus on increasing voter engagement at federal, state, and local levels, though exactly how it plans to do this is still unknown. Parker has even previously worked with politically minded startups, investing in Votizen before it was later purchased by a startup that he co-founded, Causes, according to Forbes.
