About Us

About us

SGO is a family of ventures that aim to provide societies, governments and individuals with the tools to address what are likely to be some of the twenty first century’s most pressing challenges.

We develop innovative, technology-based solutions and deliver them alongside significant, on the ground consulting services.

SGO is built on the extraordinary success of Smartmatic, which leads the electronic voting industry in terms of revenue, profitability, geographical presence, innovation and quality of support services. Smartmatic is now the largest component of our enlarged group.

SGO’s teams work in different areas but are guided by a common philosophy and ideals. We also share leadership and intellectual property. Together, we believe that we are more than the sum of our parts.

The SGO Group is headquartered in London.

Philosophy

Philosophy

SGO is committed to achieving profound social impact through the application of technology-enabled solutions. Whether in our work focused on elections, government efficiency, pollution control or identity and privacy we aim to help governments better serve their citizens.

In trying to accomplish this mission, we are guided by a number of core principles. One is the importance of empowering individual citizens through voting and participation in the governance process. Another is the promotion of better interaction and data sharing both between citizens themselves and with their governments.

A third is that our solutions work best when they are custom made for our customers. A fourth is that technology only works if designed to be accessible and easy to use. This is why our on the ground support services are so important; we always want to ensure a consistency of service that means our technology always works for the end user.

Most importantly, we are a company whose staff are largely located in countries undergoing rapid transformational change. Our staff and their families live this change every day. So we listen to our neighbours and come up with products and services.
