Prisca Marilanga lives in Zambia. She is a single mother of five children who’s also a healthcare worker. Every day, Prisca would walk nearly ten miles to visit her patients, racing against the sun on her way back home. “The distance was just too long,” she says. “I was only able to visit two patients per day.” Now that World Bicycle Relief has empowered Prisca with a bicycle, she visits 15 patients per day.
Are we alone? That’s the core question the SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is trying to answer. Looking up at the night sky and reflecting on the vastness of space can be a humbling experience. And yet, those stars we can see represent just a tiny fraction of what’s out there.

That’s why flexible tools are needed. And that’s where Dropbox comes in.

INDOCHINO’s mission is to change that by delivering made-to-measure suits that don’t break the bank. The company originated selling custom suits online before moving offline and opening physical retail showrooms. Scaling that type of precise craftsmanship required scaling the way their entire business works together, and that process has been enabled by Dropbox.
