Konektid is founded on the belief that people in emerging markets should have access to the same opportunities as anyone else in the world. By making it easier to access and manage USAID resources, we connect new ideas, products and services to international markets where they can make a lasting, positive impact.
With long-term outcomes in mind, its consultants guide you through the entire USAID experience, from understanding the market and connecting you to the right partners, to drafting your proposal and managing your awarded contract. Konektid clients include multinational corporations and NGOs, small businesses, prime contractors, subcontractors, and local businesses and organizations in emerging markets.
Its team of trained and experienced USAID specialists have designed and managed billions of dollars of USAID projects around the world, and it brings this experience and our network to our work. Konektid can support local recruiting and partnering through our in-country networks in more than 60 markets where USAID works.
Throughout the decade Mike Shanley, Founder & CEO, worked in international aid, he saw great new ideas, approaches, and products, that were not always accessible to people in emerging markets. Mike founded Konektid in 2013 to connect great ideas and innovations with USAID projects. Konektid leverages deep industry experience and networks with USAID partners to help clients bring their work to emerging markets through USAID.
Konektid's team has experience working with USAID and their most successful partners, and it brings this expertise to the clients that want to start or grow their work with USAID. In addition to supporting prime implementers, Konektid works with USAID subcontractors to design and implement USAID business development strategies, and with the private sector to help them better partner with USAID investments.
Since its founding, Konektid's team has worked with clients ranging from the Fortune 500 to small local partners in emerging markets, all looking to grow their work and partner with USAID.
