Our Mission

Allied For Startups’ mission is to connect startups with policymakers from around the world. By building a global network of startups, entrepreneurs, VCs, and advocacy organisations, we will work together to create a worldwide consensus on policies that can positively impact startups and grow digital entrepreneurship and digital economy at large. In doing so, we will decrease the legal barriers hindering innovation and make sure there is a flat field for entrepreneurs to focus on building their dreams and making the world a better place.
