Never before has there been

so much technology
and knowledge available

However, technology has not gone hand in hand with

the real needs of people

Every 90 seconds

a child dies from drinking
contaminated water

In 50 years the world population has increased

by 4 billion people

Today 4 billion

people live in poverty

Nothing assures us that the situation will change

social unrest

The world is on a

collision vector

Everything indicates that

it will become worse


We want to change the acceleration 

of the fight against poverty

Connecting advanced science and technology 

to social and environmental problems

We do Innovation with Purpose

That is, not only for those who can pay for it

We are convinced that from the audacity to think different

it is possible to challenge what is established 

Through collaboration, 

we can generate great changes

It is not a problem of financial resources


The Integrated Objectives Model connects social innovation with corporate sustainability

IOM More Info

We created the Integrated Objectives Model that seeks for each stakeholder to pursue its own objectives, recognizing the legitimate right to work for their interests. The Model proposes a collaborative work among different sectors integrating problems, objectives and capabilities, articulated in such a way that the collective impact is rooted in the most vulnerable.


We have created

Innovation with Purpose
Impact Driven Model

We propose that

The Integrated Objectives Model generates multidimensional and cumulative impact

People living in poverty are not the problem, they are part of the solution

Our model links corporate sustaunability with social problems

Technology without a heart behind it, is not enough

Our model has been adopted by

Innovation Center, founded in 2010, which creates Innovation with Purpose projects, generating technological solutions of high economic, social and environmental impact for different industries.
