BizVizz is corporate behavior made transparent and available to all. Just snap a picture of a brand’s logo or bar code and presto: a simple, graphic screen tells you the truth about America’s largest corporations. Taxes? Political donations? Subsidies? We’ve got the goods! Brought to you by the makers of the As Goes Janesville documentary.

Whether you like to “shop your values”, you’re a concerned citizen, an activist, or a reporter on the economics beat, BizVizz is for you.
More than a "wikipedia" of corporate transparency, BizVizz makes it easy for you to get involved and DO something. We’ll alert you when there’s an action you can take — from signing a petition or joining a campaign to weighing in on legislation or accessing a new report. And everything in BizVizz can be quickly shared with your social networks so that your friends and colleagues can join in.
BizVizz is brought you to by the filmmakers behind the award-winning PBS|Independent Lens doc As Goes Janesville and their great partners: the Sundance doc We’re Not Broke, Citizens for Tax Justice, Good Jobs First, and the Sunlight Foundation. You can learn more about our key partners and others who've joined our effort once you download the app.
