founded in 2007 as an open source development shop specializing in the creation
of websites and mobile applications for a variety of locallybased companies
and nonprofits. Headquartered in Vancouver, with offices around the globe in
the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and the United States, we have set a company
goal to begin to build a corporate legacy, using tech as a force for social
good. This past February we launched our Corporate Citizenship program,
which seeks to build partnerships with civil society, the private sector, and
institutions interested in creating sustainable development and change through
technology. Citizenship to Appnovation is about a commitment to being an active
community member, fulfilling our duties, obligations, and desires to act as a
positive force and change maker. For Appnovation, this means a sense of
responsibility to our local communities, and to the world as a whole.

within the Vancouver community. With a number of worthy organizations operating
in the city, we wanted to ensure that our Citizenship partners emulated our
workplace culture and core values of growth, innovation, teamwork, customer
satisfaction, and openness. The Isa Mundo Foundation stood out as an ideal
candidate: believing that using our skills and expertise can act as a powerful
force for those in need.

very excited to continue a dialogue with Isa Mundo around future projects and
areas of collaboration. We feel very honoured to have the opportunity to work
with such a reputable and respected organization. We are greatly looking
forward to what the future holds for our teams and the individuals who can
truly witness technology become a tool for social change.
