People and the digital revolution: Advancing our social mission through technology
Focused on the implications of the digital revolution on financial and social inclusion, the event gathered about 650 participants – including representatives from European institutions, investors, microfinance institutions, NGOs and fintech experts – from 44 countries (East and West Europe, Central Asia, the Caucasus and beyond).
Through two plenary sessions and 16 workshops, attendees had the opportunity to explore how microfinance institutions can be proactive in embracing and making the most of technology to provide valuable opportunities for entrepreneurs, start-ups and social enterprises. Discussions embraced issues like big data for financial inclusion, innovative risk management, crowdfunding, MFI partnerships with fintech, and digital solutions fostering the financial & social inclusion of migrants.
