Keeping the momentum in empowering the 4.5 billion people at the BoP - How will mobile technologies help?
Two months ago, we started a series of presentations and events to explore how technologies are impacting populations at the Base of the Pyramid, meaning the 4.5bn people living with less than
$8/day. Our first edition was an introduction to the topic which gathered 40 people at The Hub. We now have more than 4000 views on Slideshare, a sign that this is a hot and important topic, and
that people care about it.
We'd like to invite you for a second session at The Hub, where we will be focusing more on mobile technologies, and how they empower millions of people in emerging countries, changing the ways
they can: get an education, access to banking features, improve agriculture, help better access water, and more.
We will also share with you more amazing hard science technologies for the BoP.
Join us for an hour where we will present key figures and, most importantly, case studies from Africa, Latin America and Asia. These are entrepreneurs, citizens, companies, research institutions
and schools creating new technologies and mobile behaviours from which we can learn a lot. (there is much to learn)
