mSurvey gets its own case study at MIT
In developing countries, there are few options for obtaining objective, timely data. In 2010, as a Massachusetts Institute of Technology PhD candidate, Kenfield Griffith visited Kenya and noticed that over 70% of adults had access to a cell phone. In 2011, with a fellowship from MIT’s Legatum Center for Development & Entrepreneurship, he went back to research the potential use of cell phones as a viable way to collect data. After completing his studies and obtaining initial funding, he returned to Kenya and founded Mobile Surveys Inc (mSurvey).
