Using Data To Empower
Communities and Support

Technology is rapidly transforming our economy but we aren’t prioritizing humanity’s well-being in that process.

We Need A Solution.
We Need Data Sovereignty!

Data Sovereignty Is The Undeniable Presence Ownership, And Stewardship Over One’s Data Across Any Dimension And Or Environment.


The state or fact of existing, occurring, or being present in a place or thing in real-time.


The state, relation, or fact of being an owner. also: the rights or interests of an owner.


Is an ethical value that embodies the responsible planning and management of resources.

A Paradigm Shift In Value

The digital transformation has positioned society closer to a dual economic structure in which the value of contextual data will increase tremendously.


People and communities are recognized as consumers and target markets even though they are the true producers of the contextual data that is used to innovate existing infrastructure and support emerging markets.


Community data creates valuable feedback for industries in marketplaces but without ‘data sovereignty’ individuals are unable to maximize the benefits they are able to get from their own data.
