• We connect the world emerging tech communities

  • why is this important?

    Most of the world's population lives in emerging economies and these are getting connected online. We exist with the purpose to link, bridge, connect and cross-pollinate the technology communities of the Global South (Latin America, Africa, Middle East, India, South-East Asia, and China).



    How Does GlobalSouthTech Connect These Communities?

    By creating events around the world

    We have organized over 70+ tech events across 4 continents through our meetup platform with the goal to create and foster cross-border partnerships between our 43 different chapter cities around the world.

    By making introductions

    Using our internal platform (using MongoDB and NodeJS), we have created a pipeline of investment, talent acquisition, partnership and innovation mapping opportunities between regions and key tech stakeholders including investors, accelerators, co-working spaces, maker spaces, tech startups-companies, telcos, public-private institutions, governments, and policymakers.

    By creating video content interviews

    We created the GST Video page to inform our global community on what is happening in tech communities like Cambodia, Taiwan, and beyond featuring:

    • Key tech market and expansion insights and parallels between countries and regions
    • Interviews with key tech community leaders
    • Tech startup and company spotlights
