About Us

Our origin story is not an uncommon one. We met in school as bright-eyed bushy-tailed post-graduates. Then with warp speed, we unleashed our ideas into the world. We quickly built companies, went in and out of jobs in different sectors creating technologies for global giants. Along the way, we learned and grew as professionals, who for the most part, felt good about the value we were providing the marketplace. Then, the global pandemic hit. The whole world was on lockdown for several months. Everyone slowed down.

We had to slow down too. We heard the stories of our friends and neighbors who lost their jobs and businesses. We listened closely to our mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, and other loved ones in Sub-Saharan Africa who struggled to stay afloat in the absence of government aid. We helped support our friends and family in forgotten cities in Latin America and Africa.

We listened closely to our mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, and other loved ones in Sub-Saharan Africa who struggled to stay afloat in the absence of government aid. We helped support our friends and family in forgotten cities in Latin America and Africa. We heard with the megaphone of our cell phones the fragility of the markets in the Global South. We saw with the magnifying glass of social media, the under-resourced state of governments in these forgotten places. We witnessed with the binoculars of video chats, the suffering of people. We went into our pockets, lent people our ears, and gave them our sympathies as we witnessed their sufferings. We did what we could until we realized that we could do more. We could leverage our collective skills to help the situation.

Uncut Lab is a group of software engineers, designers, data scientists, and technocrats who specialize in developing technologies for emerging markets in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. We leverage the tools of big data, SMART technology, and artificial intelligence (AI) to help businesses, public health officials, social scientists, and environmental conservationists manage complex problems.
