Rotary International has been uniting businesses and leaders to advance global goodwill and peace since its formation well over a century ago in 1905. With more than 35,000 member clubs and 1.2 million members, Rotary International is a global network of people who believe in the shared responsibility to create change and take action on humanitarian issues.
Current priority projects include fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies (Source: Rotary International). Short-term fixes are not enough — Rotary International focuses on creating lasting change with long-term solutions.

Founded in 2014, Bitso was Mexico’s first cryptocurrency exchange, facilitating the transfer of Bitcoin, pesos, and US dollars. The company now handles an additional 28 cryptocurrencies and is growing rapidly: after amassing one million users over six years, Bitso has quadrupled its member base within the past 24 months. In addition to its popularity in Mexico, the company operates in Argentina, Brazil, and El Salvador, and is planning to launch in Columbia within the next month.
Slack is where the future works — an ambitious headline from a company that has been making waves redefining how we communicate at work. Now part of the Salesforce family, Slack certainly isn’t afraid of taking on big ideas. Restructuring your work life. Simplifying teamwork. Allowing users to focus on what truly matters. Pushing the envelope when it comes to localization.
