PopTech is dedicated to investigating, prototyping and growing social innovations. From breakthroughs in medical diagnostics to new ways of mitigating the effects of climate change to providing access to mobile services in the developing world, PopTech identifies extremely high potential projects and adopts them as Initiatives.
Each Initiative typically features an array of technical, corporate, design, and/or academic collaborators, with PopTech providing project management, partnership solicitation, fundraising and media documentation to bring the project to fruition.
We seek new approaches to problem solving with tightly defined success metrics, the potential to serve a million or more people at low cost, and a potential path to self-sufficiency. These projects focus on using new technologies to effect scalable, replicable and sustainable social change.
