Organization Description

Copia Global (“the Company”) is a for-profit, consumer goods catalog order and delivery service for the peri-urban and rural populations of the developing world.

Just as the Sears catalog revolutionized life in the pioneer days of the United States and Amazon revolutionized life in the internet age, the Company is applying many of the same marketing and distribution concepts to increase access for rural and peri-urban populations. With $5T of annual income, the peri-urban and rural populations of the developing world represent a huge untapped market opportunity.

These populations remain underserved with no affordable access to basic necessities.
Copia Global, using mobile communication technology and the internet, will open up distribution to these hundreds of millions of the world’s population, enhancing their lives while creating a world class operation.
