Who we are 

Localintel was founded on a very simple idea - every community, regardless of size, should have the opportunity to access world class technology that helps local business prosper.

Localintel's story

A brief history

In early 2016 co-founders Dave Parsell and Mehdi Amoui observed that most communities lacked the time and budget to harness the power of the internet to support local business growth. They set out to change this. 

Using cutting edge technology they created a first of its kind catalog of tools that is now being used by communities across the United States, Canada and Australia. 

Through hard work and constantly listening to needs of communities and business, Localintel has become one of the most innovative and fastest growing government technology companies in the world. 

From 313 to 1,239,000

This is the population size of the smallest and largest municipalities we are working with.

3 offices

From humble beginnings in Calgary, we have since set up offices in Seattle and Philadelphia.


This is the combined population of the communities our tools are currently helping around the world.

1% donated

We are committed to giving back by donating 1% of company equity and profit to charities.
