Building aid, health, development and environmental solutions by sustainably localizing emerging technologies
What we do
We are building a global network of labs where people accelerate and scale the impact of their humanitarian aid, global development and environmental protection efforts using appropriate robotics solutions.Robots, such as drones, are radically transforming multiple industries through rapid and dramatic gains in efficiency and productivity. We want to create the same impact in a responsible and meaningful way by building local capacity and incubating new businesses in developing countries.
We use our Flying Labs to transfer the latest and most appropriate robotics technologies to aid, development and environmental organizations in developing countries — our Social Good Partners. In some cases, our social good partners may also be our Flying Labs partners. Our social good partners ultimately take the lead in using robotics solutions for social good.
We co-create social innovation labs that transfer relevant skills and appropriate robotics technologies to local partners in developing countries so they can scale the positive impact of aid, development and environmental projects. We co-create these labs with local universities, not-for-profit groups, community organizations and/or government — our Flying Labs Partners.
We create strategic partnerships with robotics manufacturers, associated tech companies and research institutes — our Technology Partners. These partners gain direct access to our Flying Labs where they can transfer their skills and technologies to local partners engaged in social good projects. This benefits companies in many ways.
