Fadi: Great to be here, Spiffy, thanks for having me! The digital divide, between people who have access and skills to use technology and those who do not, has increased. This is amplifying challenges of poverty, disconnection, and access to resources. Venture 2 Impact works to increase access to technology and digital resilience in order to reduce global poverty. We do this by using human-centered design and design thinking to create dynamic and adaptive approaches to complex challenges. We connect global communities to skilled, professional volunteers, and leverage untapped skills to create a lasting impact.
Danielle: Ever since I was a kid I have always wanted to change the world for the better. When I was in school and learned about the amazing ways that microbes can help plants, I decided to use these microbes to improve how we grow food so that we can feed the growing human population in a way that doesn't hurt the planet.
Suba: Nyaanum is a digital content company focused on exploration, culture, and virtual travel. What makes Nyaanum unique is that our content is created and curated by the people who live in the places we visit—as opposed to professional photographers or foreign travelers. We create the space for communities to tell their own stories about their homes—what makes this place special to them—but also stories that highlight what is shared across cultures. There is a strong focus on empowering less heard, more marginalized voices, bringing a diversity of perspective and experience. We want to become the premier company to experience the world virtually in an inclusive and respectful way by and for everyone on the planet.
