Our origin story.
How it became our mission to make it easier to run for office.
The story of Hubble began in February 2019, when our founder, Justin Adkins, was planning a campaign for the Ohio State Senate. As a software developer running a low-budget campaign, Justin knew he needed to keep costs down. But after the frustration of being priced out of existing campaign data tools, he started building his own.
Over the next 11 months, he worked tirelessly on what would become Hubble in his spare time while juggling a full-time job and campaign activities in the evenings.
Although Justin's political campaign wasn't successful, he soon found a new use for his talents as a volunteer for a local congressional candidate. The congressional campaign needed a tool to cut turf that wouldn't break the bank. Justin took his old campaign website, gave it a rebrand and the name of Hubble, and officially launched it into orbit on February 18, 2020.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and delayed elections in Ohio, candidates were forced to run their campaigns entirely online. Justin doubled down on his efforts to create a powerful, user-friendly platform for connecting with voters remotely.
Over the years, Hubble has continued to grow with new features and functionality and helped more and more first-time candidates run for office. Hubble was selected as a Mercury First Seed finalist in 2022.
Hubble was incorporated as HBLE, Inc. in 2023 and is headquartered in Worthington, Ohio.
