YPIN: Technology at the Margins: How IT Meets the Needs of Emerging Markets
Developed countries have seen tremendous economic growth in the last several decades in great part thanks to advances in technology and its integration in our daily activities. It has revolutionized our lives by changing the ways we play, work, communicate, learn, manage our finances, and stay healthy.

But what about the rest of the world? What about the other half of the planet who lives under $2 a day? Could they also capitalize on the technology revolution? Could it bring them out of poverty? Is technology affordable or even relevant for their immediate needs?

Join YPIN in exploring these ideas during a networking reception and panel discussion with Sailesh Chutani, Jessica Rothenberg Aalami, and Akhtar Badshah, the authors of the book "Technology at the Margins: How IT Meets the Needs of Emerging Markets." The book lays the foundation for explaining how technology can truly help those at bottom of the global economic pyramid and specifically in the areas of healthcare, education, microfinance, and the environment. We'll understand how technological innovations, new business models, and creative partnerships between the public and private sectors can go a long way in transforming the lives of underserved populations.

Networking Reception: 6-7pm
Panel Discussion:7-8:30pm
