BluPoint

Free access to trusted digital information

BluPoint is a low cost solar-powered, pop-up intranet solution for people living in remote areas.

Mobile phones are commonplace, even among the poorest people of Africa who live in rural communities where the provision of electricity and other essential amenities are scarce and unreliable. Yet there are many barriers to the provision of healthcare, education and economic development information to these communities.

BluPoint delivers curated information and targeted communications to people in remote areas using the mobile technology in their pockets, even those without internet connectivity or a web browser. The content is free of charge at point of use and is supplied at faster than 4G speeds. BluPoint has the potential to enable companies, governments and other organisations to communicate effectively with people and communities in offline and off grid locations. The company’s vision is to positively impact the lives of 20 million people in 20,000 communities by 2020.
