Accelerating Global Problem Solving

We apply Cisco’s most valuable assets to solve global problems: our expertise and technology.

Multiplying our impact

When we put transformative technology in the hands of passionate people, few challenges are too big. With Cisco technology and expertise, we’re empowering global problem solvers to make a positive impact on people, society, and the planet.

Leveraging our strengths

We focus our efforts where our strengths can make the greatest impact. For example, when our products are used in crisis situations, when we empower nonprofits to develop scalable technology solutions, and when Cisco employees lend their time and expertise.
