Work Ahead

The Pitch We help companies talk directly with workers in emerging markets about topics like human rights, decent work and progress towards sustainable development. We save the results in a blockchain that brands can use to show how their products are made. The What Change poverty & inequality in supply chains The How We make technology that companies use to talk directly with workers in emerging markets about human rights, decent work and progress towards sustainable development. Our technology helps companies align their suppliers behind common goals, support suppliers in improving working conditions, and share their work transparently with consumers. Most people in the world are poor or low-income. Yet, most of them work in our supply chains - collecting cotton made into t-shirts we wear or harvesting coffee that we drink. Decent work is one of the best routes out of poverty. By creating scalable, market-based mechanisms for brands to ensure their suppliers respect human rights and advance decent work, we can help people lift themselves out of poverty. The Why Most people are poor, yet work in our supply chains. We make scalable technology to reduce poverty and inequality.
