Research & Innovation
Social Research & Innovation Strategy
We use participatory research methods and data-driven strategies to co-design and co-create tools that help deliver credible research results for development and impactful innovations in our rapidly evolving society.
Results-Based Project Management
Design, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning
We work with the target communities and support partners to effectively and efficiently deliver desirable and measurable results through impact-driven project design, monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning within multi-sectoral programming.
Business Modelling & Analytics
Product Validation, Testing & Analysis
We explore and analyze data insights and market trends to offer needs-based business development support to entrepreneurs, innovators, ecosystem enablers and MSMEs using business analytics tools and metrics, user-centred lean validation approaches, consumer research and product testing.
The Tectona Way
Our experience in working with people has led us to develop a four-step design thinking model to accelerate social innovation for impactful and sustainable socio-economic transformation.
Tectona’s data-driven and human centred-design thinking approach is an important lever for economic transformation and job creation.
We support Enterprise Support Organisations (ESOs) and other businesses to innovate, increase programme impact, create jobs, leverage impact investments and markets as a crucial component for building resilience and sustainable incomes and thus inclusive growth.
We aim to build the capacity of ESOs providing business development services to youth-led and women-owned Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and start-ups; but whose services and models are not able to yield impactful and sustainable businesses, whose operations and management structure are not able to meet international standards.
We work with a pool of multidisciplinary experts to execute various programmes and projects across diverse multicultural setting.
