Delivering sustainable
innovations to improve lives

We are creative problem-solvers

We solve problems by uncovering what matters. We're serious and spirited. We marry the rigor of research with the fun of digital games. We speak the language of our communities and deliver the vision of our clients. 


​We are a woman-owned business using empathy and diverse expertise to improve lives globally. Our approach aims for transformative change. We look at a problem from a systems lens, uncovering why a problem is a problem and the symptoms and root causes that are revealed by those most impacted. ​


​We apply our systemic understanding, and then design innovations informed by what people want, need and aspire to. We then create partnerships to sustain these innovations.


Creativity at work

We lead every project with a discovery mindset to create solutions informed by insights into the dynamic ecosystems in which people work and live.

We collaborate for impact

We build strong partnerships to implement, scale, and sustain transformative initiatives.
