Digital Miles' purpose is to create an inclusive digital economy where everyone can easily access and use the financial tools they need. We recognize that many people face barriers to accessing digital financial tools due to their lack of familiarity with technology, low levels of literacy, social norms, or limited financial resources. We aim to bridge these gaps by creating low-cost, user-friendly solutions, by leveraging technologies. Our vision is to empower people to use financial services regardless of their abilities, and our mission is to develop digital solutions that unbanked populations can use conveniently and easily. Ultimately, Digital Miles believes that enabling financial inclusion can help reduce poverty and create a more equitable society.
We utilize a human-centered design approach, identifying the issues and challenges faced at the last mile of the target segments and experimenting with local contextual propositions. In addition, we specifically deploy Innovator's method to develop or refresh business models for products.
Have you ever come up with an idea for a new product or service but didn’t take any action because you thought it would be too risky? Or at work, have you had what you thought could be a big idea for your company—perhaps changing the way you develop or distribute a product, provide customer service, or hire and train your employees? If you have, but you haven’t known how to take the next step, you need to understand what Nathan Furr, and Jeff Dyer call the innovator’s method—a set of tools emerging from lean start-up, design thinking, and agile software development that are revolutionizing how new ideas are created, refined, and brought to market.
To date these tools have helped entrepreneurs, designers, and software developers manage uncertainty—through cheap and rapid experiments that systematically lower failure rates and risk. But many managers and leaders struggle to apply these powerful tools within their organizations, as they often run counter to traditional managerial thinking and practice.
Based on their research inside corporations and successful start-ups, Furr and Dyer developed the innovator’s method, an end-to-end process for creating, refining, and bringing ideas to market. Whether you’re launching a start-up, leading an established one, or simply working to get a new product off the ground in an existing company, the innovators method is for you.
