Because politics is everything now

Prepare for a fascinating evening featuring two digital media trailblazers who have upended the traditional political media landscape. On the eve Election Day, Jim Vandehei and Mike Allen, founders of Politico and Axios, will visit CORE: for an insightful conversation on what's going on inside the Beltway.

Jim VandeHei is a co-founder and former CEO of POLITICO, the digital media company that upended and revolutionized political and policy journalism in Washington and Europe. Jim was the leading strategic mind behind its high-growth, high-impact and highly-scalable business model. Jim was named one of the 100 leading information age thinkers in America by Vanity Fair and was awarded the 2015 Editor of the Year award by the National Press Foundation. Jim covered the presidency and politics for the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post before starting media companies. Now, Jim is changing the media landscape once again as a co-founder and CEO of Axios, the new media company he’s launching in January with Mike Allen and Roy Schwartz. Axios (means “worthy” in Greek) to deliver top insights and reporting on business, tech, media trends and politics to smart, engaged readers.
