We find ourselves half way through the year 2020, and already so much to reflect upon. Throughout all the challenges, we might still find cause for celebration for the solidarity we have shown in overcoming a powerful virus through the ways that we as a community have stood together to show our support and help the emergency workers as best as we could.
We must remember this fellowship as we rise together to face other global issues, by continuing to support our friends, colleagues and neighbors throughout the world as even more change is needed to transform these darker times into opportunities for growth, learning, and equal opportunities for all, regardless of gender, age, color or background.
One of the current ways to help that we would like to highlight today is the ability to help refugees through access to education and technology. Your business can contribute and make a difference to the lives and families of Syrian refugees & vulnerable Jordanians by recruiting trained web developers for a remote internship, as organized by the Chams NGO.
Our portfolio companies stand for a better world for all, and their new initiatives and funding rounds help to facilitate their journey to helping the world experience a brighter future, and so we are pleased to share their news with you.
Now, let's get you in the know!
