Change Is Our Passion

Our mission is to drive transformative social impact by applying DEVA talent in partnership with the most innovative and effective organizations, whose work improves communities and lives around the world through sustainable development, healthcare, education, global economic development, the arts, and much more.

We believe that applying business models to solving complex social, economic, environmental problems is the key to prosperity for posterity. We work tirelessly to help organizations that have pioneered and scaled models of change that demonstrably work, but which often lack access to the type of strategic consulting that DEVA can provide to help them reach full potential.

DEVA is a Social Enterprise

The term 'social enterprise' is still relatively new in our culture, and we are excited to partake in its spread. ‘Social Enterprise” is more than just a buzz word in the business and development worlds. It’s a way of operating business and addressing social, economic and environmental issues simultaneously.

It can be difficult to define because there are many variations. But typically, it’s a business model that lives between traditional business and traditional nonprofit. We happen to like Social Enterprise Alliance’s (SEA) definition: “Organizations that address a basic unmet need or solve a social or environmental problem through a market-driven approach.”

Our Mission, Our Vision and Our Values are the core beliefs and ambitions that capture the essence of being DEVA. They define our company purpose, what we strive to achieve, how we act and how we create value for our key stakeholders.

Our Focus Areas

Our pro bono work brings DEVA’s talent, expertise and insight to organizations tackling today’s urgent challenges in education, racial and social equity, economic development and the environment. To tackle these issues, we have organized around four key areas.

Advancing Sustainability

We have a responsibility to protect and enrich our planet. It is a core part of our business and we embed sustainability and ethical practices into all that we do, being accountable for our actions while driving improvements wherever and whenever possible.

Transforming Lives

There are limitless possibilities when we apply our scale, portfolio and partners to solve complex societal challenges. Our economic development work leverages the power of markets and business models to create jobs, fuel income growth and improve quality of life for the world's poor.

Women Empowerment

By promoting gender equality at work, DEVA contributes to solving GB discrimination issues within the professional environment. in doing so, DEVA strongly believes that organisations will create an added value and achieve a higher performance in a sustained way.
