Our vision is to flourish people and the planet because technology has been built with their welfare in mind. We have made it our mission to mobilize resources so that technology ventures designed for positive global impact can grow, scale, and expand to make a difference in the lives of people and the health of the planet. Working closely in technology for over 25 years, we have seen that the power of technology has addressed global challenges at scale. We see how today’s innovators and innovations positively shape the world we will live in when built with vision and purpose. We envision a world where technology is made with the intention of human flourishing and environmental abundance. Our mission is to mobilize the resources in global tech ecosystems to grow, scale, and expand their innovations to create a positive impact on people and the planet. Our work includes transforming knowledge, expertise, financial investment, best practices, regional and global networks into fertile soil so startups can grow and deliver their technology solutions into the hands of those who will benefit most. We enable technology and innovation to create happier, healthier, wealthier people and more sustainable life on our planet.

GoGlobal works with seasoned agents & mentors worldwide, spanning diverse industries, to mobilize their most significant assets in their network to drive meaningful change to global problems. GoGlobal agents & mentors are visionary entrepreneurs, investors, or professionals who guide, educate, and inspire startup founders to become significantly better leaders, successfully transform organizations into truly great enterprises, and build a better world for future generations.

The way we work - and the value we add - comes from working actively with our portfolio companies to support their engagement with our growing global investor and partner network to give them the best chances of success. This involves regular strategy meetings and much active legwork on our part and yours.
