“When we were considering various platforms to use, we were won over by the spirit of Kumu's manifesto and their focus on helping social sector leaders make sense of the networks in which they are working for change. Kumu’s thoughtful regard for the nuances of mapping, along with their whatever it takes customer service ethic have brought us squarely into their corner!”
