Innovation

We take the road less traveled because we know it will lead to a better way forward. Contakt World will always seek more and better ways to build on non-conventional solutions and ground-up innovations, with a guidepost of health equity for people in crisis-affected communities to strengthen their own resilience.

Health Equity

Wherever the risk is highest, we’ll be there. If digital divides and language barriers could keep us from serving critical communities,we wouldn’t be doing our job. Contakt World is optimized for accessibility across populations, regardless of technical capabilities.

Diversity icon

Diversity

Our team is deliberately diverse because of our leadership team’s core beliefs. To serve people and businesses in a way they can trust, we must understand, respect, and empathize with everyone regardless of, and even because of, their culture, race, religion, creed, or circumstance.

Balancing Purpose With Profit

Our first priority is to make sure no pandemic or epidemic can do this to people or economies again. Making money is second. If the most profitable decision isn’t the right decision, then it’s back to the drawing board—every time. We believe business can be a force for good.

Meet the best, most curious minds in the business.

Our team includes healthcare professionals, finance experts, policymakers, brand and design experts, innovation hackers and publishing experts.Our diversity is our greatest asset as we serve in the interest of thegeneral population.
