About Google and Techfugees Denmark and our partners

Despite being one of the largest tech companies in the world, Google originated from humble beginnings - the product of 2 Stanford University graduates, one a proud refugee, (and a garage). With a company motto of "Do the right thing", the company has sustained a commitment to being a positive force in society.

Techfugees is an international impact-driven organisation nurturing a sustainable ecosystem of tech solutions supporting the inclusion of displaced humans. We exist to empower displaced humans and support tech innovation that's design by, with and for them.
