Who We Are

IQM is a team of technology experts, developers, entrepreneurs and academics who leverage algorithms and AI to develop data-based solutions for political campaigns. The company was co-founded by Bhargav Patel, CEO and Kris Qiu, COO.

Our Mission

We develop processes powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to more accurately measure a voter’s level of enthusiasm, open mindedness and political motivations. We create predictive models of how they consume media, not their voter behavior.

We are not an agency that judges voter sentiment and we did not acquire data through fraudulent means, but rather provide the most clear picture of a voter’s journey on our platform from campaign kickoff to the booth.

Well Connected

IQM has real time anonymous consumer data on over 500M consumers with rapidly growing data partnerships.


Our lead team of developers and software experts have built consumer centric business applications over 20 years.

Open Philosophy

We encourage in-house development and autonomous solutions by offering a wide range of AI tools and wrappers developed by our community.
