Leveraging the promise of technology to advance inclusive, equitable and sustainable growth

While technology continues to turbocharge Southeast Asia’s growth and development, the reality is that it is also transforming our economies and societies in fundamental and unprecedented ways. We know little yet about how these profound changes may require adaptations in our economic, social, political and economic systems.

We have only scratched the surface in understanding the impact of technology in a complex region like Southeast Asia, and much more can be done to enrich our collective knowledge and engage in meaningful discussions on the topic.
The Tech for Good Institute is creating dialogue, research and communities to harness the promise of technology and its full potential to uplift lives in Southeast Asia. We are a non-profit founded by Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading superapp.
