Our data matters.


We care so deeply about the success and impact of our work in Asia that we choose to live and work there. All but one of our staff are located in Asia, working daily alongside our entrepreneurs to ensure that their ventures move through successful incubation and launch stages with our accelerator curricula.

IMPACT ON COMMUNITIES

To ensure that their businesses are having an impact on their communities, our fellows undergo training to measure their employees’ progress toward goals across six dimensions of holistic health and to develop KPIs to measure their employees' access to basic needs. We help them develop solutions to their community's greatest needs based on these results.
