Esper’s mission is to be the system of record for policy in government

Esper empowers governments to create more equitable policies

policy lifecycle management


With better access to data, comes more informed policy. Esper started by ingesting federal and state regulations and laws directly into the product. We allow agencies to seamlessly search policy by keyword, flag policies to review later and conduct side-by-side comparisons of policies.

Collaboration has historically been very manual in nature. Our cloud-based policy drafting tool allows for streamlined collaboration across all stakeholders in the process. From writing policy all the way to approval and publication, each step can be completed within Esper.

Esper believes in increased transparency across the policymaking process. This is why citizen engagement is a core function of our product. Agencies can gather and analyze this meaningful feedback from the citizens their policies impact the most.

An area we identified as critical in the policy lifecycle was visibility. Esper allows your agency to visualize and analyze your policies with the ability to identify repealed references, average reading level of policy, average page length, total restrictions and more.

A Letter from Our CEO

Governments deserve the best technology has to offer

Back in 2018, Lilli and I started Esper after seeing, time and time again, the process and scaling challenges our civil servants faced without access to enterprise-grade technology. We heard first-hand from policy analysts and agency directors about the myriad of paperwork processes, disparate systems and limited access to actionable data.

Policy is truly the foundation through which all government processes originate. We firmly believe that access to modern, transparent and data-driven tools will not only improve operations, but be a tremendous step forward in creating equitable and easy-to-access policies for everyone.

Our mission is clear, we want Esper to be the system of record for all policymaking in government… A single platform that allows agencies to enhance one of the most critical functions of government.
