We're IDEO.org

The challenges of poverty are too big to solve alone, which is why we believe in big networks, deep partnerships, and a global community.

We’re a group of designers, strategists, storytellers, business thinkers, and development experts—based in San Francisco and New York City—who believe in the power of design to make big change in the world.

Fortunately, we’re not the only ones. Our network of partners—foundations, NGOs, community organizations, governments, and social enterprises—along with the support of our amazing Board, helps us stay on course.

At IDEO.org, we're working to bring creativity, imagination, grit, and empathy to bear on the world’s most difficult challenges. And we think that everyone can solve problems more creatively by putting people at the center of the process.
