mission statement

To become the platform that develops, promotes and accelerates convergence by combining the strategic Plaza Ecosystem with proprietary Cloud, Mobile Communications and Blockchain technology.

our history

Newdea® has traditionally been a software provider for the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) sectors for Governments, Social Sector, and Business ESG compliance. Newdea products service the high-end M&E market and is utilized in over 190 countries to manage programs. The government, social sector, consulting, and business relationships we have developed in our M&E business have become the building blocks of the company to help us develop our vision for the future. Convergence of the developing world with the business and investment sectors of the developed world is estimated to grow to a $2.3 trillion per year opportunity. Our vision is to bring dignity to individuals, communities and nations through meaningful employment. Our mission is to be the central platform to develop, promote and transact this convergence.

Newdea’s Plaza™ platform provides a framework for countries to develop a maturity model for economic freedom and growth. This includes three key building blocks: development of data as a sovereign asset, facilitation of a long-term economic master plan to provide a framework for facilitating business and creating a community of users and marketplace around the data products.

While the premise of our business model presumes that developing countries own their data as a sovereign asset and the user base owns their data, the Company retains certain rights and permissions to monetize the data and users with a revenue share for the country and users who enter and maintain data. The Plaza™ platform will also be the platform for new businesses, ICO’s, and third-party applications.

The goal of the Plaza™ platform is to provide the largest database of government planning, statistical, natural resource, user behavior, transactional, and business data. We are creating business predictive analytics and artificial intelligence tools over the platform that act as a transactional aid to convergence. By engaging the Plaza™ platform, countries can accelerate the convergence process and quickly find economic prosperity.
