Mission statement

Design that Matters is a 501c3 non-profit that finds the best opportunities for design and technology to have a massive impact serving the poor in low and middle-income countries. We design world-class products to deliver a better quality of life to millions of beneficiaries. DtM has received top distinctions and our designs have impacted many lives. In 2012, DtM followed Apple, Patagonia and Nike, to win the National Design Award including lunch at the White House with First Lady Michelle Obama. In 2010, Our NeoNurture infant incubator was named Time Magazine’s #1 Invention of the year. Firefly Phototherapy devices distributed in 2013 have already treated 1,000 newborns with jaundice in Southeast Asia and Africa.
