gnucoop started in 2006 as a small group of free-lance IT professionals with the idea that free software and technologies have great economical and technical advantages and they can provide very useful tools to achieve Companies/Institutions/NGOs/Research Institutes/Aid Agencies’ objectives.
In 2012, we officially founded the Soc. Coop. gnucoop , in order to institutionalize our position and provide a more comprehensive and recognized expertise and support to our clients, particularly to non profit institutions. Our applications/projects provide technical support and tools for those NGOs, Institutions and Agencies that are currently working towards the achievement of the MDGs and later to the post-2015 development agenda.
Our team includes Engineers, experts in Information Technology and professionals in the field of Development and Cooperation. Everyone in our team has either lived and worked or currently living and working in developing countries, in Africa or Latin America, having expertise in both the private and the service/NGOs sector. This allows us understanding the working dynamics in the developing world and their approach to the use of technologies as well as their challenges in applying it.
We actively participate in the international debate on the use of technology as aid supporting tool, linking up with the international network of aid worker and the international IT community. We are a young, very dynamic and flexible organization, that sees in its employees the key element to succeed as a cooperative and to help achieving the important objectives of the international development community.
