Our Mission:

Humanizing Technology for Social Impact

Ipvive sees the world as a global ecosystem, comprised of micro and macro systems that are all interconnected with each other. We are global citizens, and we define our goals based on global, regional, and local social impact.  Above all, we seek to create more than just economic value – we want to build sustainable, trusting, and mutually beneficial, transparent relationships for individuals, communities, and the world.

Our Values

We view relationships as systems. They only work when all parties benefit. They’re only stable when everyone has a reason to invest in them. That’s why we’re always striving to deliver value to our partners, collaborators, and stakeholders. We seek harmony and balance in our relationships. That’s a core pillar of our organization and our technology.

We also believe in synergies. We believe that a system is more than the sum of its parts. Collaboration is a key component of our growth strategy because we believe in the exponential value of shared contributions and coexistence. We want to see our partners succeed as much as we want to succeed ourselves, and this goes back to our unshakable belief in mutual benefit – we try to build relationships where everyone shares  in the outcome.

As a company focused on creating relationship capital, we know the importance of trust. We believe transparency builds trust and accountability. That’s why we’re transparent about what we do, from our data policies to our value propositions.

We believe transparency creates more trusting relationships that are balanced and mutually beneficial to everyone involved. 

Our global goal is to build a world where technology responds to human needs, and to enable a society where wealth is measured in emotional and cultural capital.

Our regional goals, as they relate to Asia, include a three-pronged approach to building trust:

  •  In Japan: we hope to address the small and medium enterprise succession crises; the declining, aging population; and the wealth disparity among urban, suburban, and rural families. 
  • In South Korea: we plan to address high youth unemployment and the wealth disparity between the capital and other regions.
  • In Indonesia: our social strategy is to address the emerging middle class market and the cultural and wealth disparities among Indonesia’s diverse population. 

 

We’re a team of open-minded divergent thinkers. Our team, and our technology, thrives on positive deviance. We hope our team members, our partners, and our stakeholders think differently, because that’s what moves us forward and encourages us to keep creating and innovating.

We don’t just safeguard your data; we want our users to have full ownership rights over it, including who can access it, use it, and derive value from it. This means that opt-in with informed consent is just the beginning. We give our users choices and control. Because, ultimately, we’re building relationships based on shared values, not attraction.
