Devin de Vries is a social entrepreneur dedicated to fostering technological innovation to solve emerging market challenges. Beginning in Africa, he’s spent the last decade leading a growing team inspired by a shared vision to bring technological solutions to the challenge of public transport in the ‘majority world’—a truly wicked problem. Focused on the ground-truth, the WhereIsMyTransport team have developed the most comprehensive view of the ubiquitous yet digitally invisible public transport networks spanning emerging market cities; the informally run mobility networks responsible for moving billions of people daily. For the WhereIsMyTransport team making the invisible visible is simply a stepping stone in their collective pursuit to ‘empower people everywhere to get where they want to go’.
