Our Mission

At Nexleaf, our mission is to preserve human life and protect our planet by designing sensor technologies, generating data analytics, and advocating for data-driven solutions to global challenges.

Health and climate change interventions all around the world are plagued by a lack of data. Is the equipment we’re deploying functioning properly? Is it achieving the impact it’s meant to accomplish? Are the initiatives undertaken by the global development community really working?

We have seen how access to meaningful real-time data enables responsive interventions, which include mechanisms for monitoring & evaluation, self-correction, and accountability, and result in verifiable impact. We know that robust, resilient, cost-effective technology can bridge the gap where other infrastructure is lacking. And we believe that the best solutions come when we engage with people on the ground and create technology that meets their needs and integrates into their lives.


Our Model

We build robust, cost-effective, cloud-based sensors that work everywhere and upload data in near real time from anywhere.

We build web-based dashboards with visualizations and customizable analytics tools designed to serve the people who need the information most.

We iterate in the field and work with people on the ground to install, service, and constantly improve our technologies.


How We Work

Nexleaf Analytics is a nonprofit technology company with a unique bottom-up approach for bringing data-driven impact to public health and climate change interventions in low- and middle-income countries. Our diverse team of computer scientists, software engineers, mechanical engineers, data scientists, public health experts, environmental advocates, and field managers design and deploy technology to ensure sustainable impact. We work directly with end users and iterate on our technology in the field to ensure that our sensors are customized to meet the specific needs in each country.

Our relationships with countries and NGO partners go beyond providing sensors and dashboards. We also bring our expertise in data analytics to help our partners utilize the data they already have, regardless of the hardware that data comes from. Our nonprofit mission motivates us to focus on the impact of our technologies, carefully consider feedback from end users, and ensure that the right analytics are provided to answer key questions. We see the importance of integration and interoperability of all data management systems, especially when we work with countries and governments. With a device-agnostic approach to data advocacy, we work with Ministries of Health and project partners to provide data analytics support and system-wide integration, including with human resources systems, to maximize the effectiveness and impact of interventions.
