I've worked with TEL for several years, and it's always been a strongly mission-driven organization powered by enthusiastic, bright people! Great to see how TEL has grown over the years!
Technology Exchange Lab is a great resource for developing countries like the one I am from. As a volunteer with the organization I get to see their work firsthand and I am proud to be apart of this enterprise of change.
The Technology Exchange Lab partners with our program, the Comprehensive Initiative on Technology Evaluation at MIT, in several facets of our technology evaluation work. They're an absolute delight to work with, always ready to share fantastic insights from their work and full of ideas on how to better disseminate the knowledge and lessons learned our organizations are cultivating together.
The TEL team was fantastic to work with -- genuinely excited and passionate about their subject area in a way that made the work both more engaging and more fun. The way it should be!
TEL is a wonderful resource. They seem to really care about alleviating poverty in the world. They helped our organization by listing us in their database as a telecommunications solutions provider. Speaking with them via email, their staff have always been friendly and helpful. - Eric Bryant, Text Engine
Technology Exchange Lab is a fantastic organization working to provide a direct link between solution providers and consumers. Its members are intelligent, dedicated, and passionate about forwarding the organization's mission of supplying high-impact, low-cost technology and encouraging innovation. As TEL continues to grow, it has the power to create widespread, meaningful change and I eagerly look forward to what the future holds for them.
TEL's unique and differentiated opportunity to bring necessary technology to the underserved really has the potential to create a category-defining non-profit. Interesting people, interesting ideas, and the resources to take real action.
Working with TEL has been such a rewarding experience. It has been eye opening to understand and truly appreciate the different types of technologies that can impact the world in wonderful ways. TEL is a great bridge for solution providers and consumers to communicate and be in reach with one another. This is a great resource and opportunity to be used by anyone that is interested in making a difference or figuring out a way to make a difference.
We have worked with TEL as a solution provider on several occasions. They have provided our organization with detailed information and presentations on innovative solutions that can be implemented locally in remote and low-resource countries where we operate. TEL has provided crucial insight into connecting entrepreneurs across the world with the right solutions to fit their needs. The organization is unique and operates under strong leadership.
TEL has entered an exciting growth and expansion phase that can make it a force in the international development space. With an actionable idea that can result in far-reaching impact, TEL is definitely an organisation social entrepreneurs should keep an eye out for!
TEL's mission of bridging the gap between solution providers and solution consumers has a huge potential for impact in economic development.
Technology Exchange Lab is a fantastic organization that will continue to grow and amaze. As a volunteer I've witnessed first hand the levels of openness and collaboration that are key to a healthy organization. Additionally, the connections that TEL has with so many of the creators of such wonderful technologies is quite a feat. The work that they've done bringing all these solutions together so they could be accessed by anyone is tremendously helpful.
Technology Exchange Lab is fixing to become the Consumer Reports of humanitarian tech, providing an unbiased data base of solutions for low-resource settings. They are committed, knowedgable, and patient about this work, while being careful and methodical. It fills a huge vacuum, and needs to be supported and expanded. Bravo!
Technology Exchange Lab aims to bridge the communication gap between field workers and the solutions for their problems. After talking with many non-profit groups at conferences, and with my friends in Engineers Without Borders, quickly finding a simple solution is ironically not that simple, and Technology Exchange Lab is making the right connections to put solutions in the hands of people that really need them.
Technology Exchange Lab offers a great service to help users find low-cost solutions to problems of poverty free of cost and is unique because they offer completely unbiased options over a wide range of sectors. I have found TEL to be particularly useful as an intern because I can apply my education and other interests to these different sectors, particularly sustainable solutions in the database. Everyone involved with the organization is committed and passionate about what they do, which I find is essential in the development of the work we do, along with the constant search for new opportunities.
