San Francisco-based software development firm Zendesk announces partnership with Danish Be My Eyes – a mobile app that connects the blind with sighted people through live video calls.

“Be My Eyes represents a new generation of startups that is putting social responsibility at the core of the company at its founding,” said Mikkel Svane, the founder and CEO of Zendesk.

“We want to share our resources and experience so that even more socially minded entrepreneurs around the world can mobilize people to help others through technology and new business models,” he adds.

In addition to the partnership, Zendesk also commits to integrate Be My Eye’s model of crowdsourced volunteering to its customer service platform.
