Briter - a tweaked version of the word ‘brighter’;
Bridges - ‘a time, place, or means of connection’ (Merriam-Webster);
Briter is built around the intention to reframe and adjust the conversation about economic development as well as investigate the ways innovation and technology intertwine with social change - particularly across emerging markets. Our mission – putting information into reliable and digestible data – is grounded in the idea that investment and creativity depend on the availability not only of data but also a conducive narrative and a knowledge infrastructure.
