June ICT for International Development Meetup Announcement
The Base of the Pyramid or BoP strategy of using market-based or enterprise approaches to fighting poverty has been garnering a lot of attention in the recent years.
June's ICT for International Development Meetup will feature a presentation by Allen Hammond, one of the pioneers and thought-leaders in the BoP space on the topic of Technology Transformations for the Base of the Pyramid (BoP).
Dr. Allen Hammond (Bio), VP for Innovation and Special Projects at WRI, is charged with catalyzing and sometimes leading development of new projects, initiatives, and tools. He also directs WRI's Development Through Enterprise project, which works with foundations, development agencies, and a number of major corporations to further the use of pro-poor business strategies and digital technologies in development.
The Global Development meetup is hosted by the Center for Global Development in DC. This meetup is for anyone interested in international development issues and topics. Our meetups are intended to be informal group discussions and community building events. Hope to see you there.
