The company's goal is not to simply deliver technology, but to approach problem-solving from a human-centered perspective. The team's process is exploratory and iterative, yet lean and rapid. CauseLabs utilizes the principles of the scientific method, which has proven to bring innovation and life-changing improvements into the world, and mixes it with Human-Centered Design, Lean Development and Agile Project Management.

The B Corp model aligns with our vision to create for impact. It keeps us accountable to the things we value and ensures we stay true to our mission.

The Change We Seek®

CauseLabs believes that everyone deserves to experience the life-changing benefits of technology. There are many problems that deserve to be solved: breaking the poverty cycle, improving education, providing access to clean water, the list goes on. However, building a tool does not always equate to solving a problem. CauseLabs understands that problems are often part of a greater system and tools are used by people. Both must be evaluated and considered to result in sustainable solutions that create long term impact.

What makes us a better company?
