iDE Global

Partnering for a sustainable future.

We invite corporations to join us in solving poverty through innovative business solutions.

We believe one entrepreneur can change their community, and millions can change the world. iDE realizes the potential of entrepreneurs living in the most difficult places to drive positive change for their families, communities, and countries. iDE wants to partner with companies who are committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a framework for corporations and NGOs to collectively address tough global problems.

Companies already making business a force for good with iDE:

The health of your business is tied to the well-being of the planet

Your customers and your employees care about the effect your business has on the world: in the products you sell, the services you deliver, the supply chains you use, and the causes you support. Partnering with iDE is a great way to show that you not only value tackling tough challenges like ending global poverty, but that you are taking specific actions that benefit society and the environment in measurable ways.


"Thankyou partners with organisations tackling extreme poverty in a systemic, scalable, and impactful manner. We began a partnership with iDE in 2020 as we believe in iDE's market-based approach, their dedication to rigorous measurement and collection of data for continuous improvement, and how they serve vulnerable communities by viewing them as active entrepreneurs rather than passive recipients. We truly believe and share in iDE's vision of powering entrepreneurs to end poverty, not just today, but for generations to come." —Pete Yao, Chief Impact Officer, thankyou.

Queen City Collective Coffee

"Queen City has always focused on building relationships across the coffee supply chain because we believe direct and genuine connections foster greater equity for farmers and producers. Knowing the individuals that pick, grow, and process your coffee inspires creative and urgent solutions to coffee's unbalanced and unjust commodity market. We see these same values reflected in iDE's approach to poverty alleviation and that is why we are proud supporters of their work." — Scott Byington, founder of Queen City Collective Coffee

Queen City sponsored iDE on Colorado Gives Day 2021 and supports smallholder coffee farmers through blockchain technology.

Who Gives A Crap

"In order for every person to have access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene, we need partners that are curious, audacious, and resilient. The curiosity to ask how things can be done differently, the audacity to do it and the resiliency to learn, adapt and do it again. iDE is the epitome of this and has demonstrated this throughout our partnership. It is because of organizations like iDE that we believe we will reach our collective goal in our lifetime!"
