Next 3B is writing a new chapter in its 3-year old journey!

We are delighted to share the exciting news that Next 3B is now part of Trickle Up, a New York-based international non-profit development organization that empowers people living in extreme poverty. Since 1979, Trickle Up has helped more than 1.5 million of the poorest, most vulnerable people in more than 18 countries around the world move to greater economic self-sufficiency and connection with their communities. This integration provides Trickle Up with a force multiplier and Next 3B with an avenue to continue building on its original vision.

Next 3B was founded with the aspiration of bringing large-scale social and economic change harnessing the power of smartphones. We brought together strong coalitions of partners including founding members, MasterCard, Tata Communications, McKinsey & Co, Brightstar Corp., developed a number of on-the-ground projects, creating livelihood opportunities and expanding local commerce.

Encouraged by the success of these pilots, we believe that being embedded within Trickle Up will provide a terrific opportunity for Next 3B to realize the potential for creating sustainable impact at scale.

Stay tuned!
