Meet the Team

We advise international organizations, companies, UN agencies and non-profits on how to leverage the power of exponential technology in their work to make a lasting difference.

We design and lead projects that digitize already successful interventions in the areas of poverty alleviation, education, gender and the environment.

We work with partners to take what already works and help it scale.

With over 30 years of combined field work experience in Africa and the Middle East, we know how to listen to our stakeholders and build what matters.

We are early pioneers in the Digital Development Principles, online mentoring and ICT4D. Our two directors sit on the faculty at Singularity University.

We consult with the private and public sector on systems strengthening, with a focus on equity. We leverage the power of exponential organizations and our developers span three continents (Africa, Europe and Asia) and over a dozen countries.
