1. We map human needs: individuals and organizations input their needs via SMS and web directly to Needmap.
2. We analyze data to answer complex questions, such as “what are the causal effects of malnutrition in Nepal?” or “what are the ways to address virus outbreaks in central Kenya?”
3. Needs get fulfilled: anyone can pay to meet particular needs. The needs are delivered through our proprietary need-fulfillment technology. Most importantly, you are notified upon beneficiary receiving purchased product or service. You’ve got mail!
Exposing Problems for Innovation
Einstein put it well: “If I had an hour to save the world I would spend 59 minutes defining the problem and one minute finding solutions”. Needmap’s entire existence is based on using data to understand problems so well that solutions can become testable and measurable. We are passionate about the transformative potential of data to create a smarter world: to bring science and data-driven decision making into the field of international development. This, we are convinced, will touch millions of lives in ways which the world hasn’t witnessed yet.
