About Uptick Surveys

Our Story

Uptick Surveys was founded by three Zambian women with a passion for data & development.

Development happens through evidence. And evidence is created through data. Whilst working for UNICEF, ILO-IPEC, United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, Department for International Development, IDinsight, PATH and the World Bank we noticed a common theme. We need hassle-free data services that meet international standards.

We understand the context. We understand the sector. We understand impact measurement. We also understand the frustrations and challenges that come with fieldwork. And so we founded Uptick to provide impact-worthy data alongside gold standard service.
