We are global development experts with local roots fostering cooperation and local solutions driven by local insights.

We use “Data Science”, or the study of large and complex data, to provide evidence-based strategies to alleviate some of the world’s most persistent problems such as poverty, hunger and violence, in the United States and in Africa.

I-STARRT works with cities, governments, private sector, civil society and philanthropic institutions to operationalize equity.

Using community-engaged quantitative and qualitative research, I-STARRT combines the scale of big data with the power of endogenous knowledge. This complex systems approach allows key actors to spatially and temporally visualize micro-environments.
