We set up AKOU because we really care about a few fundamental things.
First, we believe that business should always come with authentic purpose. Over the past decade we have worked heavily in the world of social enterprise. Running businesses with a social focus and collaborating with others who share similar aims.
Second, we really care about making our society fairer and believe that we can only do this by improving people’s social capital and social mobility. Certain enterprises (perhaps one like yours) can be really good at building diverse networks around common space, goals, aims and ambitions. These provide real intersections for different people to come together and flourish.
Third, we want to make data work for all. We want to shift how people think about, and use data. Our aim is to build ethical data sets to produce strong evidence and prove the social impact of social enterprises, creative spaces and socially focused businesses.
Creating impact data with AKOU could mean that we find impactful answers to so many of our unsolved problems. So join us and give it a try.
