How do you get information to and from people at scale in a way that is cheap, efficient, and user fiendly? Watch what Kristen Roggemann has to say…
Sometimes I lose sight of the fact that there are millions of people around the world that don’t need, or maybe can’t afford not only a smart phone, but the extra expense of the serivces and infrastructure needed to have a great user experience.
Maybe all you need is voice and SMS to get things done, survive or find employment. That’s where Souktel.org comes in.
Souktel designs and delivers mobile phone services that help link people in developing countries with jobs and helps connects aid agencies to communities who need help.
During my visit to Ramallah, I met Kristen Roggemann, Business Development Manager, at Zumn, a coffee shop that’s a hub for geeks and entrepreneurs.
