ABOUT US

With access to knowledge,
we all flourish

Our mission is to transform the way the world interacts with information.
Every last mile, every last bit, for all of us.

Why our mission matters to us

Wisdom is best when shared with everyone

A connected world means one where human ingenuity, traditional knowledge and path-breaking ideas can transcend borders, enabling everyone to share and learn from each other.

The future needs to be
sustainable and equitable

Climate change, public health, water scarcity - these are just some examples of events that start locally but send ripples throughout the world. We need to fight global problems with global solutions, and equitable access to information is the first step.

We are all in this together as a human race 

We cannot progress in silos. When ideas build on other ideas, we emerge stronger. When we progress as a world economy, we accelerate the path to a healthy, bright, and secure future for all.

A GLOBAL CHALLENGE

Today, 4 billion people on Earth, roughly half the world's population, still do not have adequate access to the internet for many reasons.

50%

High Cost of Infrastructure

The high cost of providing reliable and affordable internet is passed on to the consumer, making it unaffordable to large parts of the population.

Access to Remote Areas 

 

Remote areas and inhospitable terrain make it difficult to lay down the infrastructure needed for connectivity. 

The Lack of Digital Education
 

Understanding how to use the internet should be a fundamental part of modern education but is lacking in many curriculums.

When half the world is unconnected, we lose out on 4 billion minds: their inventions, ideas, stories, folklore, and a treasure trove of knowledge.

'Mångata' is a Swedish word for the path of light that the moon draws on water. For us, the moon is a powerful, universal symbol and its light represents opportunity for all.
