On 25th July, 2012 I was invited to participate in the G2012 Twitter Conference on Financial Inclusion organised by Ashoka Changemakers and G2012 Mexico. There were three back to back sessions over six hours focused on technology and financial inclusion, financing livelihoods, and the future of financial inclusion innovation. I participated in the Session on Livelihoods Financing. Overall, it was quite an interesting conversation. Here is a blog post on the conference summarizing the key discussion points.
Interestingly, the blog says ” The Twitter conference gathered more than 150 experts, thought leaders, social entrepreneurs, and innovators from different parts of the world. It reached almost half a million Twitter accounts and involved simultaneous conversations in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.” That is huge!
