Our Core Philosophy

Push

 

There is an urgency in our work that requires us to push hard every day. Every minute or Rupee wasted is one opportunity further from seeing impact and change in the world. We push ideas, quality, expectation, and each other to arrive at the most impactful and efficient solutions we can think of. This is our commitment.

Change

 

We grow as fast as we can change. We are constantly improving our processes, our assumptions, our understanding of reality, our solutions. This flexibility allows us to be ahead of the curve and tackle any challenges that come our way. It keeps us real.

Respect

 

We have deep humility and respect for the visionof our clients, the perspectives of our beneficiariesand stakeholders, our work and our team. We learn from one another and this collaboration helps us explore with an inclusive mindset and come up with breakthrough solutions. It keeps us grounded.
