At Globant we believe that technology is inherently good and improves lives around the world; and since our first days we seeked that everything we do generates a positive impact on society.

However, when tech is misapplied or misused, its impact can be negative. The misuse or excessive usage of tech needs to be addressed to ensure tech is beneficial for humanity as a whole. Society faces huge challenges and we have to be part of the solution.


To reinforce our vision, we launched the BeKindTech Fund, a US$10 million venture fund to support tech startups tackling the misuse of technology in society.
