Who We Are
In Chichewa – a Southern African language – Ulula means “reveal”. We started Ulula after years of talking to communities and extractive industry professionals in the Niger River Delta, the steppes of Mongolia and Kazakhstan, and the highlands of Peru.
We are a team that believes in transparency and accountability as key drivers of successful business and social development. Our founding team has 35+ years of experience combined in energy, mining, technology and innovation, community development, and foreign aid. We are passionate about delivering results for our clients while delivering social value to all.
