We are tremendously grateful to all our partners for their investment, collaboration, and guidance over the years:
At Stanford, we worked in the XSEED incubator space (2013-2016) thanks to the Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies (SEED). SEED seeks to stimulate, develop, and disseminate research and innovations that enable entrepreneurs, managers, and leaders to alleviate poverty in developing economies. SEED’s work is based on the belief that a critical route for economic growth is through the creation of entrepreneurial ventures and by scaling existing enterprises.
Our Partner in Haiti, Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL) is a 501 C3 non-profit founded in 2006 with the mission of transforming wastes into resources in Haiti. Since its founding, SOIL has been demonstrating that it’s possible to provide safe, affordable sanitation access to people living in even the world’s most vulnerable urban communities. SOIL established Haiti’s first waste treatment sites as well as the first Container-Based Sanitation (CBS) service which are both continuing to grow. SOIL’s vision is to provide a model for ecological sanitation services that can support the communities in which SOIL works and serve as an example for business development in the sanitation sector in both Haiti and other impoverished urban communities around the world.
