where innovation serves humans
We promote informed consent and local ownership through human centered-, locally relevant knowledge and locally designed-, built- and managed technology.
Accessible education and certification
If you know what needs to be done, how to do it and what people are able to pay, then there is too much work - and the more people that do it, the easier it becomes. We coordinate standards, training and support presented by veterans in infrastructure, custom fit for local culture and conditions.
The buzzword is "commons". Wi-Fi-, Mobile- and IoT Networks is as useful as water and electricity if applied correctly, because it can aid the efficient funding and building of those. It can be rapidly deployed if critical infrastructure is shared, and if there are no central bottlenecks. Check back soon for case studies.
Automated Accounting & Documentation
Marry the principle of "don't repeat yourself" to every transaction and action in your project and free everyone from admin, to free up more time working with others, and get more done, more accountably. Automation is a great tool to promote independence and self-reliance in disadvantaged communities.
Co-working & Maker spaces
We encourage people to build shared working spaces, and to co-fund equipment. Like minded people like to work together and share resources. Why incur all the expenses of your own space when you can share and co-own it and share in many unexpected benefits from having like-minded people together in the same space!
Technology improves exponentially: Every 2-3 years you can get double the speed and capacity at the same price. By being intensely consultative and by helping you learn from the best, we can help you think and plan many steps ahead, gain the best market insight, the best price, and the best time to deploy, given your purpose.
Free & Open Market Research
When everyone can see market and revenue potential clearly, as well as who is working on what, self-coordination can take you industry to a new height. Why compete when you can solve different parts of the same problem? We invite everyone who can help to make this happen, to work with us.
Misunderstandings need to be patiently and mindfully guided to maintain peace and integrity. Newcomers need an opportunity, and time, to grasp the whole picture, and the necessary time needs to be budgeted for and the desired outcomes and decided means developed and shared, and reiterated in locally relevant terms.
Community Software and Conferences
All the software we develop carries a license which allows anybody to study-, use- and improve it for free. We hope to one day support critically needed shared software through a generous grant programme and to play a part in making sure that these are well designed and well represented at relevant conferences
Seed funding and small grants
Organic growth means your solution works and that it can grow rapidly in the right conditions, but every seed needs enough water to grow. We can help you frame your problem and automate reporting, so you can find the seed funding you need to grow healthily.
