IDEMS (Innovations in Development, Education and the Mathematical Sciences) International is a young social enterprise, registered as a not-for-profit community interest company in the UK. We have academic roots and aspirations of global impact. Our work has mainly been consultancy in Africa to support development and education projects. We are transitioning to move beyond consultancy and towards service-oriented business models.
Our work cuts across a wide range of areas, from agriculture and climate to education and software development. We are passionate about projects related to development, education and the mathematical sciences, and particularly work that impacts more than one of these areas.
As a community interest company, we are defined by the communities we serve while being able to do business commercially. Serving a community gives us a sense of purpose beyond our own self interest as individuals or even as a company.
