About us

The empowering people. Network – Technologies for Basic Needs aims to make promising low-tech solutions accessible and further their successful implementation on the basis of sustainable entrepreneurship models.

Millions of people face immense basic supply challenges on a daily basis, which could be met by implementing appropriate technological solutions. Such solutions not only provide the chance of levelling out acute deficits but also offer diverse opportunities for independent economic activities coupled with urgently needed income.
