Since 2007, we have leveraged the power of exponential technologies to bring high-impact interventions to scale across more than two dozen countries with a focus on equity and sub-Saharan Africa.

 

Our Mission

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. Working with partners, we take what already works and help it scale.


Our projects help people facilitate and create social and economic resiliency.
