The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Craig Heintzman

Founder and CEO
Craig founded Arifu in 2013 to help underserved people access the information, products, and services they need to climb out of poverty. The concept for Arifu came about during his time living with a low-income family in Zimbabwe as they struggled, failed, and eventually succeeded in building a microenterprise together. Prior to moving to Africa in 2011, Craig led business development for the World Wide Web Foundation, an NGO founded by the inventor of the Web, Tim Berners-Lee, to foster a more open and inclusive Web responsive to the needs of underserved people globally. This followed Craig’s earlier work with W3C as a Research Assistant at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. Craig graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) and B.A. in Philosophy from Queen’s University, not far from his hometown of Toronto.
