Beentouch is an innovative startup born with the desire to guarantee the right to communication to all. Many economies defined as “poor” are expanding rapidly and unlike what is thought to be evolving at an impressive rate. These economies characterize what we call “emerging markets”, countries that are growing at a fast speed and will soon reach a level of industrialization and digitization equal to ours. Among these economies, those of Sub-Saharan Africa stand out. Countries such as Ghana and Nigeria have infrastructures that today allow access to the Internet and the digital world. In addition, most of the population has a smartphone with which to communicate. A device connected to the Internet opens up a range of unlimited opportunities, but these are often denied because of software that cannot be used under certain conditions. This combination of factors does not allow the use of the most common communication software used in developed countries, such as Skype, Hangout, Viber and so on. Beentouch was born with the intent to ensure that anyone with a minimum of technology has the opportunity to communicate.
