IMTFI’s Sixth Annual Conference for Funded Researchers – LIVE

The Institute for Money, Technology and Financial Inclusion at University of California, Irvine is LIVE online, over the course of the next two days. Presentations and the discussion can be viewed at this link:


The conference runs today until 17:30 (2:30 CET) and runs tomorrow from 9:00 – 17:00 (18:00 – 2:00am CET).

The conference brings together the institute’s sixth-year award recipients who will present their preliminary findings. As more and more philanthropic, industry, and development actors ask whether mobile technology can help provide access to needed financial services like savings and money transfer, these projects look to the experience on the ground of existing, traditional money systems and financial practices, as well as the potential and real impact of new technology in providing access to finance for the world’s poor.
