Our Story

Out of the complexity of the COVID pandemic, the urge for a transformation and transition to a digital society became a top priority, as did the need for decision makers, policy practitioners, and politicians to deepen their understanding of digital technologies as enablers for economic recovery, and as a tool to respond to shared social challenges.

 

PIT Policy Lab, the first spin out of C Minds, is a consulting company focused on public policies and development of technology governance models with a focus on the Latin American and Caribbean region. We offer solutions to solve complex challenges through socio-technical projects anchored in the principles of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. From the field of Public Interest Technology, our team works on the development of practical research and roadmaps around the responsible use of technology, as well as the implementation of proofs of concept and the creation of educational products.
 

We work with decision makers in government, the private sector, civil society, academia and international organizations. We have collaborated with key allies in the regional technological innovation ecosystem.
