Columbia University Partnership

First Access has begun a formal partnership with theWorkshop for Development Practice, which will allow us to work with a group of four graduate students from the School of International and Public Affairs for eight months, traveling to Tanzania to do market research on launch strategy, product development and potential for social impact of the system that First Access has been developing. We would like to extend our gratitude to Columbia University, the School of International and Public Affairs, and the Department of Economic and Political Development (EPD). In particular, we thank Professor and Department Chair Jose Antonio Ocampo, Professor Jenny McGill, and Ilona Vinklerova for their support.
