Mexico, Benin, Tunisia, Kosovo, Vietnam … Digitalisation is a powerful lever to improve the livelihood of many people worldwide through digital solutions that enable economic and social welfare, especially in emerging and developing countries. Tech companies have the capabilities to participate in this process and leverage positive impacts on the ground. But does this always have to be CSR activities when it comes to emerging and developing countries? The world is getting increasingly connected and companies are operating globally. Accelerating digital transformation around the globe benefits both business development and the public good!

Listen to some of the biggest global tech companies when they discuss and give examples of how the digital sector can combine an inclusive and sustainable digitalisation with business strategies. With a deep-dive panel and short project pitches we show you how to bridge tech and development cooperation with a tech4good approach.
