Our Purpose

Since the company’s inception over a decade ago, our purpose has been clear and consistent: to use advances in design and digital technology to dramatically transform the lives of citizens and the wider public. Our work reflects this mission and over the years we have refined our interests into focus areas listed below.

Access to Justice

Since 2012, we’ve made a commitment to effect change in the justice and legal space. A sector that had yet to be transformed by the internet revolution will be with ever lasting changes to the way we as citizens interact with the law.

We Believe in Government

We believe in Government. We believe in it as a force for good. We believe in its capacity to make broad reaching and impactful change possible for millions of people, if put to use correctly. As such Government is both a partner and a central focus of our work.

Future of Work

We all play a role in defining what our workplace looks like, future and present. As part of our continuing exploration of how technology is reshaping our world, Portable has commenced the exploration around the future of work, in a paper entitled Redesigning Work. It’s part of a broader independent research project that Portable is conducting to explore the changing relationship between work, technology and human behaviour.

Digital Health

We see a large disconnect in what the health industry – whether practitioners, governments or insurers – wants and what end users want. Our passion is to bring these two communities together.
