GLOBE Telecom launched the Globe Future Makers (GFM) 2019, in collaboration with The Spark Project, as it takes its position as an accelerator for social innovators in the country’s startup community.
Introduced in 2017, GFM is the social innovation program of Globe which aims to help build the ecosystem of support for startups which are using technology to solve the Philippines’ most challenging social problems.
GFM 2019 is open to Philippine-based individuals, groups, or organizations with solutions that use technology such as a device, platform, hardware or software, to achieve wide-scale positive impact.

Chosen GFM finalists will each receive technology support from Globe and dedicated mentorship from industry leaders. The finalists will also have access to a robust ecosystem of passionate peers, partners and potential investors both locally and internationally, plus increased brand awareness with access to nationwide communications channels and potential for regional visibility.
