About the sponsor

mPower Social Enterprises Ltd.

mPower was founded in campuses of Harvard University and MIT in 2008 as ClickDiagnostics after winning the MIT 100K award and began its journey with an innovative telemedicine service that connected patients in remote areas in collaboration with Ministry of Health in Egypt in 2008. Following several tele-dermatology projects in USA, Guatemala and Botswana, ClickDiagnostics shifted its headquarters in 2010 to become mPower Social Enterprises. Since then, mPower had embarked on engaging in other domains such as Education, Water [&] Sanitation, Livelihood, Agriculture, etc. To date, mPower has partnered with more than 30 of the world’s leading development organizations across 15 countries to amplify the impact of development programs through innovative use of ICTs. Through the innovative solutions mPower has touched about 2.5 million beneficiaries’ lives through the development actors. Further, the solutions have been used by approximately 20,000 frontline workers. mPower has significant experience in the mHealth sector, specifically in working with Electronic Medical Records and Clinical Management System development in multiple projects within and beyond Bangladesh. We have scaled up national-level deployments with the government and large NGOs like BRAC and are in long-term collaboration with the WHO and UNICEF to implement community health-worker solution called OpenSRP in large-scale government projects. mPower is implementing ICT solutions for several USAID-funded health projects in Bangladesh, including JiVitA, Challenge TB, A2H and Nobo Jatra allowing us a unique position to cross-pollinate and enable synergies across projects. Furthermore, mPower has extensive experience developing ICT-based solutions for and training government field workers as well as NGO community health-workers and hospital management staff across the country.
mPower’s ambition is to become one of the premier innovators in designing ICT solutions to solve tough development challenges, and also to be a prime incubator of social enterprises that develop and sustain profitable ICT-based services for the disadvantaged population.
