About us

Our mission is to leverage technology to accelerate investments in community resilience and health.

Our vision is a world in which technology simplifies and streamlines the resilience journey, enabling community leaders to automate processes and focus on the things that matter most. Building resilience is an exciting journey and an opportunity to engage and rally the community around a shared vision. But let’s face it: It’s also a complex process with many moving parts and administrative requirements that can slow your momentum and throw you off course. We believe the path to community resilience depends on:

Setting bold yet achievable goals tied to physical outcomes that can be quantified.

Developing a well-defined portfolio of investments aimed at achieving those goals.

Conducting rigorous analysis that yields actionable insights for decision making.

Building or using best-in-class technology to streamline workflows and processes.

Making decisive investments at scale with appropriate funding/finance mechanisms.
