Unleashing AI for MSMEs and ESOs Around the World

A guided reading list to catch up on our work


Embarking on a journey to understand how artificial intelligence (AI) can transform entrepreneurship and tackle poverty is a challenging, but potentially transformative task. We've been working hard on this problem over the last year and sharing our findings as we go. But for those of you just joining our journey, there can be a lot to catch up on.

Each post is a step towards understanding how our unique AI product can serve as a catalyst for growth and innovation within micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) across diverse linguistic and cultural landscapes. We believe that by diving into these articles, you'll gain not just knowledge but also a vision of how to leverage AI to create impactful, sustainable change. We hope you're as excited we are, and dive into each of these posts in detail or reach out to talk more, but we've included short summarizations of each to make the journey as quick as possible.
