Exploring new pathways with the nation of Tuvalu
We are always looking ahead to see how we can help small or emerging populations (with potential) prepare for the future.
In 2020, amidst a global pandemic, we helped facilitate the deal that brought blockchain technology to the nation of Tuvalu, making it the first UN-seated country to adopt such forward-thinking innovation at a national level.
A unique philosophy on technology from a community-adoption standpoint.
More often than not, our team has witnessed a multitude of technology projects executed poorly due to a lack of understanding of people, culture, and/or community.
By taking the above into account, we can significantly improve your chances of adoption, investment, and retention for any product, venture or initiative you may have.

Helping Draper Startup House build a global community
Faiā worked with Draper Startup House (formally Tribe Theory) over an 18 month period to grow its physical communities across the globe, from Singapore to Bali, to Estonia and Portugal.
In direct response to Covid-19 and the global pandemic of 2020, Faiā helped the rapidly-growing startup launch its very first online community using Slack. The founder, Vikram Bharati, raised $3.5m from Silicon Valley investor Tim Draper.

Clients we've helped
What our clients have to say
"The Faiā team helped us build and scale both our internal and external digital communications processes. They also helped us streamline and professionalise our community building efforts, and they were able to help us find a way to combine our physical and digital communities across the globe."
Director of Business Services
"I have had the pleasure to work alongside George and Faiā on the ground-breaking digital transformation program in Tuvalu. With George having Tuvaluan heritage, I have seen first-hand the drive and determination of Faiā to use technology and knowledge, alongside the partnerships they have built over the years, to provide all Tuvaluans with the tools and insight to become leaders and innovators in the use of technology to create a better society. It is the perfect opportunity to showcase Faiā’s focus on building better communities and using technology for good. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working alongside Faiā and I am looking forward to continuing to develop our partnership to deliver the tools for other nations to follow in Tuvalu’s footsteps."
“We have known the team at Faiā professionally for some time and always welcome their enthusiasm, professionalism and industry know-how. Faiā digs deep to better understand the issues and opportunities for their clients. We have no doubt they will be a great success across Asia-Pacific.”
