Why we care
Wladimir Nikoluk and Michael Moszczynski founded ImmerLearn based on their experience working with governments, ministries, UN agencies, NGOs and the private sector. They realised that all round the world passionate and well-intentioned professionals were struggling to evaluate and improve programs while some of the most vulnerable individuals and communities were relying on them to do so. In addition, the funding gap summing to over 7 trillion dollar for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals is a direct result of those difficulties. At the same time, advances in technology, data science and academic insights would enable generation of high-quality impact evidence efficiently but quickly went underutilized because of resource and time constraints.
ImmerLearn brings together the capabilities to bridge the gap between potential and practice and serve as the platform for evidence-based decision-making and learning.
We view the nature of the key challenges of our time as global, complex and interconnected. Globalization, migration, climate change and technological progress change the world in a way that demands the public and social sector to adapt. Creating programs that effectively address emerging and exacerbating needs is at the heart of our mission.
To this end, ImmerLearn functions as a bridge between what is possible in theory and what is done in practice. We apply insights from academic ivory towers, data science labs and technological frontiers to headquarters and field units of organisations that strive to make a difference. We focus on advanced analytical methods to deploy the next level in impact-evaluation, including an ethical and socially responsible application of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
By providing transparency on needs, evaluating the success factors of individual programs and advising on ways to improve them we strive to tackle some of the most pressing social challenges of today.
ImmerLearn brings together 3 key elements to create the next generation of impact measurement tools.
- First, we use theory of change design to detail out the logic by which programs are intended to improve the world and provide a basis for continuous learning about what has and has not worked in the past.
- Second, we leverage data science to find innovative ways to track hard to measure indicators and make sense of complicated relationships between millions of data points.
- Third, we automate data gathering and analytics through technological expertise. ImmerLearn offers a suite of sophisticated impact measurement and tracking tools through ImmerLearn Insights as well as bespoke advisory services for individual challenges.
Our clients include organizations from the whole impact value chain, including governments, NGOs, UN agencies, foundations and impact investors. Our approach is based on rigorous academic and professional expertise and has won recognition from several private and academic institutions.
