Founded in 2014 by a handful of individuals seeking to create a social movement to address global peace challenges. The same passion and goals that drove them to launch PeaceStartup still remain fundamental to the foundation to date. 

The PeaceStartup Foundation (PSU), is a legal entity under private law, regulated by articles 633 to 652 of the Colombian Civil Code, decree 2150 of 1995, the Colombian Tax Statute and other applicable regulations. It is constituted as a non-profit organization, permanent, independent and autonomous and of common use. It will also be governed by these Statutes and by the norms and dispositions that, in interpretation and development of the same, establish the diverse bodies of the Foundation.
