Around the World in 80 Minutes:
Mobile money tackles global issues
September 13th at 7:00pm, @Hub SoMa
In June, The G-20 Toronto Summit discussed 9 principles for innovative financial inclusion with mobile being a key to the ICT efforts. With the growing adoption of mobile money in Kenya and other emerging markets, health, farming, clean technology, remittances, and micro-credit are now beginning to leverage this new financial system that addresses the unbanked 5+ billion people.
mPay Connect invites you to join us for our 4th Mobile Payments Series Event in San Francisco at The Hub where we recap some of the discussions that took place at the recent State Department Tech@State event and to learn how mobile money will be used as a tool to tackle some of the biggest problems around the globe.
Join us for a presentation by Menekse Gencer of mPay Connect Consulting who will discuss the opportunities of mobile money for food security and mHealth and hear our esteemed panelists discuss the use of mobile money for clean tech, remittances, and micro-finance.
As an added bonus, you will be able to see actual mobile money systems from around the globe. We travelled the world to sign up for these mobile payments systems so that you don’t have to!
