Description

AdvanceNet Labs is an international social sector technology organization with headquarters in Dallas, Texas USA. This innovative NGO develops platforms to unlock the private sector’s capacity to profitably engage in the social sector, empowering transformational change for the less fortunate and those in crisis. Social sector efforts tend to address problems at small-scale, close to the beneficiaries we are called to serve. While this creates intimacy with the underserved, it means often they are not operating at the scale of the private sector or marshaling those resources that require critical mass to acquire. By taking advantage of existing technologies, training and opportunities, AdvanceNet Labs brings the impact potential of the scale of the corporate world to the social sector.
