We find what works to reduce poverty by experimenting with potential solutions that address common challenges facing people living in the last mile. We undertake three core types of work to achieve this; 1. Experimentation, 2. Last mile consulting, and 3. Technology distribution
Our namesake, Nicolaus Copernicus, changed the way people see the world. Kopernik was founded on that same principle, seeking to challenge the status quo in the development sector and to find smarter, more effective solutions that solve persistent problems faced by those living in last mile communities.
We believe that ideas and potential solutions should be tested first and that impact should be demonstrated before large investments are made. With more innovation in the development sector and experimentation of solutions to solve development problems, better programs can be developed and budgets allocated to impactful programs that have big potential to reduce poverty. We are therefore proactive in the testing of ideas that can benefit the larger development community. At our core we want to find what works and what doesn’t to reduce poverty.
