We combine keen analysis with local insight to map the landscape of markets and stakeholders, identify opportunities, and assess consumer needs. We give clients a roadmap to succeed ― and make a positive impact.
Resonance helps development organizations better understand the technology landscape in frontier markets ― from mobile technologies, to cloud computing, to last-mile connectivity, to the Internet of Things. Our Technology Assessments provide clients with a nuanced understanding of how various ICTs can be best leveraged to achieve greater social and economic impact in areas such as education, health, agriculture, and environment.
Piloting and Scaling Technology Solutions for Impact
We work with clients to design and test new business models, forge shared-value partnerships, and leverage capital from investors and donors to help take pilots to scale. We provide world-class project management and implementation capabilities to ensure success and measure impact.
Strategic Partnership Development
Technology companies and international development organizations often have the same goals but very different means of achieving them. Our Technology Team helps navigate the differences between these two worlds. We design, broker, and implement complex multi-stakeholder partnerships, helping ensure that there is shared value between all partners.
