HOW IT WORKS

THE OPEN INNOVATION HUB FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

WHAT WE DO

SAIRA fosters a global culture of open innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals by breaking down entrenched silos and geographic barriers. The web has revolutionized the process of matchmaking—from romance to transportation, to lodging, and more. We are adapting the same approach to solve global challenges.

SAIRA IS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER OPEN INNOVATION PLATFORMS.
