Seeing the tech world through an Indigenous lens
Akawe Technologies is a custom software development company that is Indigenous & LGBTQ2S owned and controlled. They offer custom software development through an Indigenous lens. They also focus on other areas such as government and Indigenous relations. Their motto is “we build solutions, not just applications and websites.”
They are entrepreneurs that believe positive social change comes from a thoughtful integration of technology. Among their realisations is the Akawe Telemedicine Platform, which is an example of their worldview as it connects healthcare providers with Indigenous patients through live video and provides a secure portal for patients to later access the recorded conversations, provider notes and additional educational resources.
