Kopernik connects simple technology with last mile communities to reduce poverty. Since 2010, we have reached more than 190,000 people in 19 countries with solar lights, water filters, clean cookstoves and other life-changing innovations. These technologies are saving people time and money, improving health and safety, easing pressure on the environment, and opening up new economic opportunities in remote communities. Kopernik sources the best technology designed for the developing world and distributes it by partnering with local organisations and micro-entrepreneurs. We are pioneering a micro-social-franchising approach to technology distribution in Indonesia through our Tech Kiosk and Tech Agent networks. We balance a philanthropic and business approach, by mobilising donor funds to cover the upfront cost of sending technology to the last mile. When technologies are sold, the revenue is reinvested in sending more technology. Kopernik also offers professional advisory services to corporations, foundations, government and mutilateral organisations through our consulting arm, Last Mile Consulting,
