The Next Billion: Julie Hanna
For Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, “the next billion” often conjures up visions of creating the next “unicorn” company, with a private valuation that tops $1 billion. Technology innovation and economic valuation often go hand in hand. But what about social impact? A growing number of innovators and entrepreneurs are focused on the next billion people who are digitally excluded, many of whom live in extreme poverty, globally and locally. How are entrepreneurs changing the lives of the next billion, one by one? How is technology being used as a force for democratization of access and opportunity? Is there a way to dismantle the false choice between purpose and profit? Join us for a fascinating fireside chat between Julie Hanna, Kiva executive chairman and Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship, and Exponential Center Executive Director Marguerite Gong Hancock. Recorded on November 16, 2016.
