Our History

Globant was founded in 2003 by Martín Migoya (CEO), Guibert Englebienne (CTO), Martín Umarán (Chief of Staff), and Nestor Nocetti (EVP of Corporate Affairs). Our founders’ vision was to create a Latin American based company that would become a leader in the delivery of innovative software solutions for global clients, while generating world-class career opportunities for IT professionals.

We have expanded our delivery centers from one to 25 ( Buenos Aires, La Plata, Tandil, Rosario, Cordoba, Resistencia, Bahia Blanca, Tucuman, Montevideo, Bogotá, Medellín, México DF, São Paulo, San Francisco, Boston, Austin and London), where more than 3300 Globers work every day.

We have garnered several awards and recognitions from organizations such as Endeavor, Global Services, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals and InfoWorld, and we have been the subject of business-school case studies on entrepreneurship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University and Stanford University.

We have benefited from the support of our investors Riverwood Capital and FTV Capital, which have provided equity capital to support our strategic expansion and growth.  In January 2012, Endeavor Global, an organization devoted to selecting, mentoring and accelerating high-impact entrepreneurs around the world, invested in our company.
