Hi an e-mail from an experience I think it is very powerfull and perhaps some creative
synergies with the gendergap work. Cheers! Mayo
At YOPO we would like to explore potential synergies and cooperation with WikiWomen’s
Collective and gender work around Wikimedia.
Our international social enterprise (www.yopo.eu<http://www.yopo.eu>
) in Belgium is
deploying gendered innovation to more effectively impact serious societal issues,
beginning with sexual violence on women and teenagers (also secondary prevention), both
for developed and emerging countries.
YOPO deploys a women-based model with multiple stakeholders, democratic management and
bearing a co-creation, non exploitative nature. We are a one-of-a-kind endeavor, rarely
compatible with standard schemes, yet very effectively impacting some societal issues.
We are at the crossroad between impact, gender and mobile, and our experience is that
impact investing is not transparent enough to include gender issues and violence against
women among its impact investment priorities. A coincidence?
YOPO is closely supporting the evolution of the investment area "gender lens",
contributing with our own internal research: one on FEM-innovation as an advantage for
social enterprises, and one on the Negative Externalities economy formula with a peculiar
angle - gender issues and VAW emergencies impairing the ROI of some traditional markets
and investment (an angle promising relevant untapped financial resources to fight VAW and
Our current fundraising will sustain a multinational, women-based team of software
developers and social activists capable to provide, for the first time, disruptive
innovation to benefit women and teenagers with an affirmative action approach, including
women developers from both developed and emerging countries.
YOPO recently entered a strategic agreement with the European Network of Migrant Women
(ENoMW) in Brussels, to strengthen the capacity of migrant women to become co-creators of
safety for women and vulnerable groups, including victims of human trafficking and asylum
seekers, with the help of YOPO social networking and mobile technologies.
Our planned next step is our Latin America “node” in São Paulo, Brazil, a context that
today represents maybe an ideal social innovation lab.
We hope to hear from you and your contact soon.
