  • “I really love working with the VIVA team because they bring fresh energy and perspective to our work. Every one of their team members is highly skilled at what they do. Although I know that a great deal of careful planning and coordination goes into every meeting, they still make it look easy. Their work with the Bay Area QRIS partnership brought immediate results to the region. This high level of collaboration would not have happened if it weren’t for VIVA.”
