Keepod brings a PC to students at just $7. Alive in more than 25 countries, Keepod is independent, open and impact driven.
WHAT WE DO?
We created the worlds most affordable PC. And we've been giving it to students in more than 25 countries around the world. 100% independent, private, and free from influence, we are making a huge impact.
WHY WE DO THIS?
Access to free information is a fundamental human right that can help people make better decisions for themselves and for our planet. We can continue to do baby steps by marching our well fed streets or, understand that the absolute majority of the world is ignorant about critical emergencies. Our only chance for a massive change is rooted in the education of the unserved next generation.
Anytime you buy a Keepod product, we give a PC to a student living in a low income community. 1 to 1 for every single product sold. We execute projects with no need to ask for donations, grants or investments from slow dinosaurs. We manage our projects directly so every dollar gets to the right place.
We've been watching big tech and numerous organisations trying to 'solve' digital divide by continuously cultivating outdated paradigms. Our starting point is based on their mistakes. Learn more
The Keepod USB device transforms old computers to work like new. Open source, private, secure, and extremely affordable. By separating the hardware (body) from the software (digital soul) as a standard, Keepod rethinks how computers are used and creates a way that can scale and deliver computer access to students all over the world.
HOW IT WORKS?
Separate. The operating system, files, apps, and all other aspects of the user digital world/soul are placed on a private and secure Keepod USB drive. Its the greatest and cheapest universal portable technology widely available that can be easily protected and replaced when needed.
Reuse. Instead of trying to manufacture cheap PCs, we reuse old ones that are thrown away and widely available. The PC is stripped down from its hard-drive and operating system and serves as an empty shell.
Share. Refurbished PCs are placed in a public space (classroom, library, community centers) and shared personally among many, removing the need for a computer per person. The user can connect his Keepod USB to any PC, use it privately and once removed, no trace is left behind.
RADICAL LOW COST
Keepod creates high impact at low cost. Acknowledging that this is a financial problem, Keepod needs to radically cut the PC cost. Compared to the cheapest PC solutions on the market, Keepod has 90% lower cost of ownership, 93% less time to deploy and 95% less labor to support. Its a game changer with no match.
In the last 5 years Keepod was deployed in over 25 countries around the world. The technology and business model have been optimised to the point Keepod is ready and available to be delivered to any country around the world. To see our impact please check out our Twitter.
