Effecting positive change in societies through social innovation and human-centered design.
What is .social?
We believe in using a human-centered approach to solve the world’s problems. We look at how new business models can help non-profit organizations, NGOs, and responsible businesses improve the lives of the people they serve. By engaging the right partners who want to make a difference, we believe social innovation can have a transformative impact on societies.
Our .social team is a group of passionate, concerned citizens with expertise in innovation strategy, service design, business model innovation, and social innovation. We use our experience as innovation consultants to improve the way organizations are tackling societal challenges in developing countries.
Together with our clients, we are using innovation to help those who need it most. Through this work, we aim to contribute to the sustainable development of less developed regions. Join us in the journey towards an inclusive future.
