Refugees on The Rise vs Shortage of Digital Workers

Conflicts, corona, or climate changes. Just too much uncertainties are driving people displaced.
In 2022, the number of forcibly displaced people exceeded 100 million. They often lack
education and employment opportunity in host countries, being isolated.
Meanwhile, there is a global shortage of digital workers worldwide,
for about 100 million by 2030.

Impact Bond x Impact Sourcing
= Social Innovation

Robo Co-op innovated both education and employment for all.
“CAREER IMPACT BOND” is a scholarship with “pay-it-forward” mechanism to
sustainably circulate reskilling and upskilling opportunities for career development by graduates.
“DIGITAL IMPACT SOURCING” is IT outsourcing by corporates for job inclusion opportunity to enable
both scalable social contribution for global companies, and flexible remote work projects for refugees worldwide.

The dual impacts accelerate equal opportunities for all global pioneers to go beyond border.

Founder's Message


金 辰泰Jintae Kim

The pain of refugees for identity crisis and financial crisis, I can feel them from my childhood. As a North Korean boy born and raised in Japan, my life was literally tough for everything going around international relationship. The North Korean passport was almost like stateless as I had to carry a special re-entry pass like other refugees in Japan, or I could not even go overseas.

And what completely changed my life was that my ethnic school went bankrupt when I was a kid. Because our parents’ generation could not obtain a decent job with a real name and nationality, many changed their identity, and many schools went bankrupt as students decreased. The schools were the center of the ethnic community, so the entire community almost vanished as well. I do believe in the power of community. My ethnic group created its own schools to protect and rebuild their life in a foreign country regardless of nationality.

So I created Robo Co-op to recreate an online community where everyone can support each other and build a better tomorrow with new digital skill. This is a school. And this is a new home for everyone, not only where anyone can get a second chance in their new life, but also where anyone can be a giver.

We teach our people who can be a next giver in the future. And we deliver value and hope to society through digital. Many professionals and corporates have become a giver to accelerate our inclusive impact. You can be a giver too.
