Simprints Technology Ltd
Simprints builds identification systems for the "last mile" that integrate accurate, safe, and robust biometric technology into existing mobile tools. We are working at the exciting interface of biometrics, technology and international development. Our goal is to radically disrupt the inaccurate way we currently track and deliver essential services, instead building a world where every person—not guesswork—counts in the fight against poverty. We have prototyped, developed, and launched the world's first biometric system design for frontline health and aid workers. We've collected over 135,000 fingerprints to design a system truly intended to reach the last mile, built a global network of supporters spanning ARM to Google to McKinsey, and we're continuing to lead the fight for better privacy standards for biometrics. In 2017, experts from USAID, DFID, and the Gates Foundation awarded Simprints $2M as "one of the 15 most promising innovations to save the lives of mothers and children in developing countries". Most importantly, we are using cutting edge technology to fight poverty with partners in some of the most challenging places on earth.
