M4ID was founded as a social impact company in 2008 with the bold ambition of advancing the global development and health field through creative problem solving and cross disciplinary collaboration.
M4ID only undertakes assignments that improve development and health outcomes for vulnerable and underserved communities. We are a highly expert integrated multi-disciplinary team, driven by the will to make a difference.
Our unique way of working is a fusion of the interdisciplinary and human-centered approaches. Involving the people we serve ensures relevance. Integrating the expertise of different disciplines maximises creative problem solving. Collaboration with clients, stakeholders and partners is an essential part of this.
In addition to client-led work, M4ID funds and executes our own social mission projects in which we create new services and campaigns for a fairer world.
The founders of M4ID, Joe Wright and Mari Tikkanen, brought with them expertise from two decades in the development sector for the World Bank, UN and NGOs, throughout Asia and Africa. Under their leadership, M4ID has grown to become a unique, independent and sustainable social impact company.
M4ID is based in Helsinki, Finland, a hub of creativity, design, health, wellbeing and technology innovation.
