IEEE Webinar: Leveraging ICT Business Models to Help Reduce Poverty
This webinar reveals how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can viably provide access to education, healthcare, agro-services or financial services to the billions of people living with less than a few dollars per day, also called the Base of the Pyramid. The webinar is based on a review of more than 280 initiatives found in developing countries worldwide. The webinar will provide insights to the 15 of the most ground breaking market-based business models with a proven scale and results on the ground, showing that ICT can be a lever improving the living standards of the BoP. The session will, however, also show that ICT is no silver bullet to development .
