Transforming Communities.

Empowering global citizens.

Unlocking Prosperity.

GenYize (pronounced Gen-Wise) is a global advocacy and technology platform which empowers citizens and their communities to thrive though industry, commerce, technology and trade. 

We are grounded in the development of sustainable solutions which resolve the world's most pressing issues such as food, water, energy, education, healthcare, vocational training, housing, and financial services. 

We exists to harness and serve a burgeoning middle class of global citizens.

Our Methodology

We recognize problems defy a "one size fits all" solution. They are interconnected. They vary from country to country, city to city. They differ among demographics. They require a holistic, collaborative and innovative approach driven by local needs and human capital and talent at scale.

We have developed a powerful and comprehensive model that derives funding from the commercial and industrial growth of our private sector partners into a social/community undergird.
