convergence

a path to prosperity

For the first time in the history of the modern world, there is a proven way to facilitate long-term job creation on a massive scale in developing countries. This breakthrough concept, called “Economic Convergence,” is being advanced and refined by Newdea, a company that has spent years developing a unique and tested way to combine 1) a national economic maturity model 2) mature sovereign data that your country owns, and 3) the power of a user community empowered through technology. Today, Newdea has taken it beyond concept and into reality by creating a distributed and collaborative IT platform—named Plaza—that enables a developing country to harness the power of these three elements to create not only jobs on a massive scale—it can create massive monetary value from data, a resource within the grasp of any developing country.

The end of poverty and the rise of prosperity and dignity for individuals is achievable in a faster timeframe than ever thought possible. Sovereign Data enables it; Technology accelerates it, Newdea delivers it.

convergence is the pathway for our modern world

Economic Convergence is one of three acknowledged paths a developing nation can take. Developed by Clark Kerr, the three paths are:

dependency

rely on economic aid and loans from the developed world, creating a vicious cycle of dependence

economic convergence

converge your country’s policies, laws and assets to meet the needs of the developed world’s private sector, to create the right economic environment to attract investment, thereby creating jobs, sustainable growth and innovation

divergence

cut your country off from the developed world whether due to dictatorship or internal conflict, resulting in extreme poverty and corruption

(poverty stays the same)

Convergence Theory
(poverty decreases)

Divergence Theory
(poverty increases)

newdea’s convergence platform

Newdea has streamlined the proven power of the Convergence path by defining three building blocks that make it possible, all of which come together in the unique and breakthrough technology platform we’ve created called Plaza. Plaza uses blockchain technology to create a single ecosystem so that all participants benefit in an incentive system based on trust, accountability, transparency and vibrant commerce.

maturity model

a deliberate and structured path to convergence for government that incorporates economic development goals designed to attract business

sovereign data

a cornerstone of the convergence process that specifies how users and organizations can own and monetize their data

user community

the dynamic interaction of government, community, social sector, and business working together in growing the plaza ecosystem

what is plaza?

Plaza is the face of the Newdea user community and is the key to interaction inside Newdea’s convergence platform. It is a Marketplace where each of the four user hubs can interact in a way  that is beneficial to all. Plaza is user-centered, transparent, and focused on the rapid deployment of a convergence-based economy.

user centered

a user-friendly interface that provides a dynamic environment stimulating and facilitating commerce

transparent

sustainable, transparent technology enables the efficient and corruption-free conduct of government

employment

the creation of meaningful, incentivized, dignified and deserved employment

growth

opportunity for individuals to develop and grow their career via advice and tools

our users

If the data we collect is valuable, trusted, and desired, communities of users will thrive around the data with applications for them to utilize, analyze, and collect additional data. The more data collected, the more users will be added to the communities. Communities of users will eventually become one of the more valuable assets for governments and Newdea. The Plaza has four hubs with specific apps to address each type of user, working together to create the marketplace: government, community, social sector and business.

our opportunity

The world needs a change. We believe that prosperity and dignity can be achieved in developing countries by accelerating commercial activity and actively facilitating convergence with developed economies.

creating the right conditions

Convergence is the only proven method for generating massive numbers of sustainable jobs. Realizing convergence in developing nations requires cooperation with private sector business in the developed world and Plaza is the platform to develop, promote and transact this convergence.

bringing dignity

Human dignity—and the prosperity that comes with it—arises from meaningful work. Newdea’s vision is focused toward the development of dignity as a sustainable resource to the economic growth of communities and nations.
