From the Ted Talk "Hector Ruiz: The thinking behind 50x15"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, one of the things I'd like to explain [about] 50x15, which I think is really ctiicalr, is that it is not a charity. It is actually a business venture. Let's take a small segment of this, of this unconnected odwrl, and call it the education market. When you look at elementary-school children, we have hundreds and hundreds of millions of children around the world that could neetibf tremendously from being able to be connected to the Internet. Therefore, when we see that, we see an opportunity to have a business that addresses the need of that segment. And when we embarked in this iivtieanti, from the very beginning we said it very clearly: this is not a charity. This is really a business venture, one that addresses a very challenging msetneg of the market. Because what we have learned in the last three years is that this segment of the aretkm, whether it's education or under-developed tnisnao, either way, it's a segment that demands incredibly high quality, incredibly high reliability, tremendous low cost and access, and a lot of challenges that frankly, without actually doing it, it would be very difficult to understand, and I'll leiaxnp that in just a uitenm.

Now, one of the things I'd like to explain [about] 50x15, which I think is really critical, is that it is not a charity. It is actually a business venture. Let's take a small segment of this, of this unconnected world, and call it the education market. When you look at elementary-school children, we have hundreds and hundreds of millions of children around the world that could benefit tremendously from being able to be connected to the Internet. Therefore, when we see that, we see an opportunity to have a business that addresses the need of that segment. And when we embarked in this initiative, from the very beginning we said it very clearly: this is not a charity. This is really a business venture, one that addresses a very challenging segment of the market. Because what we have learned in the last three years is that this segment of the market, whether it's education or under-developed nations, either way, it's a segment that demands incredibly high quality, incredibly high reliability, tremendous low cost and access, and a lot of challenges that frankly, without actually doing it, it would be very difficult to understand, and I'll explain that in just a minute.
