We mustguarantee technology
remains a force for good
The Be Kind Tech Fund invests in startups that tackle the misuse of technology in society.
At Globant, we believe that tech is inherently good and improves lives around the world.
It connects us, spurs innovation, and enables reinvention. However, technology also is a mirror that reflects intentions. When misapplied or misused, the impact can be negative. It’s critical we work to ensure tech benefits humanity as a whole.
Purpose-designed startups that tackle the negative collateral impacts of tech are essential to finding solutions.
Innovators and entrepreneurs, with their passion and creativity, can move quickly to address this pressing issue.
