"People with disability have to have a seat at the table for everything. And, why is that important? Because it benefits society, it benefits the sort of financial and economic prospects of the future. And then there is obviously the diversity piece, but all of this plays into a larger benefit for all."

Jonathan Kaufman, Forbes writer & Business Strategist

20% of the world’s population live with disability

According to the UN, 1.5 billion people globally live with disabilities. Inclusively designed, technological innovation has tremendous potential to reduce barriers for this growing population and become a powerful driver of inclusion.

Over 1 billion people need assistive tech products, yet only 10% have access

High costs and a lack of awareness, availability, trained personnel, policy, and financing mean that 1 in 10 people that need assistive technology products can’t access them, according to the World Health Organisation.

Exclusion of people with disabilities represents up to $1.9trillion in missed GDP

The business case for disability inclusion is strong and growing. The missed contribution to global GDP of people with disability is a staggering $1.9 trillion according to the World Bank.
