‘‘The foundation is a partner for the Social Good Accelerator because the questions around digital technology are essential to understanding our society, and in particular, our businesses today. In our society, we are living through a technological revolution, similar to the period after the creation of the printing press, where we are completely changing paradigms. (…) Digital technology is a response to a collaborative society that is constructed in front of us, by us and for us.’’
