Do you have an "impossible" project?
Are you trying to improve things in a non-cash economy, or trying to do something where it is difficult or impossible to generate revenue or to find funding - and yet you deeply believe that your project will make a deeply desired impact in peoples' lives, and that technology can help? Reach out and discuss it with us, this is exactly the kind of projects we love to work on. Why? Because we share your belief that technology can help and that technology can be put to better use.
A technology consultancy, with a heart
Most technology is used to build better technology, by- and for a small portion of the worlds' population. We are here to remind you that technology is a tool to be used as a stepping stone to help us find and fulfill *human* dreams worth reaching for - such as, besides doing our best work, also freeing up more time to spend with friends and family, better ways to meet peers, better ways to work and explore together and living longer and happier, healthier lives.
We currently do this through volunteer work, which we fund by consulting for- and with who we deem to be world leaders in their fields - seldom those who are widely recognized as such, but always those working either "behind the scenes" or at the forefront, of technology and more healthy living - extraordinary, consultative people working anywhere from rural or "disadvantaged" communities, to labs or academia, to software and innovation. What is usually lacking, is not innovation, but follow through, patience, and thoughtfulness.
Our in-house expertise is centered around computer network software and infrastructure, low cost urban- and rural telecommunications, entrepreneurship, accounting software, and project management. We try to bring together academia, government and business in service of civil society in an ongoing process of learning and sharing between all parties.
Why are things not getting easier?
We live in an exciting age and we have more building blocks on the table than ever. This leads to a catch-22: Things are getting "easier", but it is getting harder to find the "good - best - easy" solutions, because there are a lot more, and more complex solutions on the table. The definition of best is different for each context and time frame. You could say that little has changed, or that a lot has changed, or that things are getting easier, or that things are getting harder - all of it would be true.
Things are getting easier- and harder - the distinguishing factor is your ability to connect the dots.
At Wish, we consult widely, in order to improve our ability to distinguish between a means and an end and to help you find the balance in that which applies to you, so that you sketch your own roadmap - on a road that you are keen to - and understand the implications - of walking on.
If you would like to invite us to walk alongside you for a while to facilitate this process, please reach out.
