When Mike and Wil, the founders of Lovable Tech, exited from the sale of Yammer ($1.2 Billion to MSFT,) they were offered positions as co-founders at various new VC-backed startups. Having worked for lots of startups (both good and bad,) and having some ideological differences with some of the mainstream tech scene methods, they opted instead to found a company with no investment capital where they could call their own shots, do what they do best, and run the company the way they felt tech companies should run.
Mike and Wil are vocal about issues in technology including diversity, management methodologies, design and engineering process, lean startups and other pragmatic approaches to creating/running a startup.

Lovable.Tech has sponsored four Code2040 Fellows (this summer makes 5!) in the last three years. We've evangelized Code2040 on our blog and within our network, paid over $75,000 in donations and intern salaries, and hired our first Code2040 Fellow upon graduating college.
Beyond the cost advantages, adoption of remote work could also put less stress on cities like San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle in the wake of tech hiring. You also lessen your company's environmental impact, can help stabilize areas that need jobs by allowing productive citizens to remain in their communities, etc.
