Since the program was first launched in 2016, more than 80 startups from 44 countries have taken part.

Trafficking prevention

We support the work of charities and non-profit organizations fighting illegal trafficking of wildlife and people, a trade which funds illicit networks globally.

Conflict Resolution

We support charities at the forefront of conflict resolution and use our network to help in veteran rehabilitation.


We raise awareness of technology’s role in tackling corruption and improving transparency, to improve the health of countries’ democracies and to highlight grand corruption which ruins the lives of many of the world’s most vulnerable.

Resource scarcity

Lack of access to vital resources creates unrest and forces communities’ future into poverty. Technology is taking huge strides to eradicate resource inequality. We support projects that raise awareness of technology innovation needed in this vital space.
