Three trends in technology are revolutionizing finance and in particular our ability to include youth in the formal financial sector.  They are: Mobility – or the ability to remain connected wherever we are; Ubiquity – where we all have access to high powered tools (software) and Big Data – where number crunching programs enable analysis at an unprecedented scale.  Learn from representatives of leading financial inclusion programs on how they are using these three trends to lower costs, improve analytical ability, and raise funds from new areas – all to promote access to finance for youth in the US and overseas.
