Originally incubated by Qualcomm out of California, BeWo Technologies is a social entrepreneurial company that designs and develops hardware & software solutions for Below-Poverty-Line markets. The Multi Authentication Cellular Handset is an Android based integrated biometric device that can bring just about all services to the doorstep of the rural individual. Applications include healthcare, self-employment, eGovernance, and financial inclusion. The design sensibility is essential in offering highly usable products to a semi-literate village population. Rightsizing convenient and durable technology makes all the difference in adoption and scalability across entire nations.
