Background

Building technology solutions for the world’s most fundamental problems

QED builds data systems and AI for human health and agriculture, the two fields we believe are most relevant to the security of humankind. We are a fully mission-driven technology company. We have regional expertise in development and humanitarian projects in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. Our work aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, and 15.

We empower local organizations in developing countries by using technology to build their capacity. We shape and adapt software and hardware to address their needs on the ground, to improve collection and analysis of data to assist in making informed policy decisions. We focus on adjusting and deploying technologies in highly-demanding environments.

Our team works with local experts, gathering insights and developing practical solutions together. Simultaneously, we provide training to develop local capacity and ensure project sustainability. We have boots-on-the-ground data collection and project support in Sub-Saharan Africa. We have incorporations in USA, EU, Kenya, and Asia.

Since QED’s inception in 2008, we have provided mission-critical support to many health and agriculture projects, in 13 countries. We built data processing pipelines for the surveillance of malaria, child mortality, crop disease, and soil health. We provide the analytical tools needed by our partners to execute targeted interventions. Our projects are implemented in collaboration with organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Gates Foundation (BMGF), the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
