About Us

WHO ARE WE

Primarily, we are a product design & learning experience agency that caters specifically to SMEs working in social innovation in tech and education. We initiate these projects by facilitating design sprints  and rapid prototyping as a service, and building offshore teams to support the business goals of our clients that work to address specific SDGs.

 At the core, we are an immigrant & Filipina women-led design agency. We employ talented women across the globe, particularly in developing nations, through the borderless ecosystems that we’ve plugged into.

OUR STRENGHTS

  • We are masters at design sprints & rapid prototyping for product development
  • We’ve spent the last 5 years conducting research in incubation spaces giving us valuable insights towards designing learning programs that nurture entrepreneurship from a human-centered design perspective.
  • We are continually sharpened through our mentorship with founders of the best innovation spaces, incubators, accelerator programs in North America.
  • We’ve unlocked the keys to globally scalable remote work through innovative tools and management structures.
  • We believe that inclusive & diverse hiring towards sustainable procurement is our strength.
  • We know our emerging tech, particularly Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality, and understand the role it can play in furthering social impact.
  • We don’t mind being wrong, we learn fast.

the vision

Our business model was designed to create opportunities for those that join our borderless teams to work with startups in the North American innovation space – immersing them in environments that nurture their innate entrepreneurial spirit at a global capacity so that they too may take on the challenge and start ventures and begin journeys such as ours, to create a new social impact-driven economy in the Philippines. We also want to act on the underrepresentation of women of color in the tech industry.
