"The vast majority of development is about giving things away, and most development agencies see the poor as victims asking for help. At KickStart, we have a very different opinion of them. We see them as entrepreneurs. We see them as extremely hardworking people seeking the opportunity to get out of poverty."1
- Martin Fisher, CEO and co-founder of KickStart International, Inc., in 2008.
"In creating KickStart, Martin (Fisher) has created a model that is, by design, sustainable and easily replicated nearly anywhere in the world where people suffer grinding poverty. Because of the quantum leap in income brought about by these technologies, the journey out of poverty is a one-way trip."2
- Frances B. Emerson, Vice President of corporate communications at Deere and Company3, in 2008.
