Learning from peers: Financial inclusion - 27 September 15:30-16:30 CEST

With the autumn around the corner we are kicking off a new series of events where we will introduce members of our own network who will speak about their area of expertise and share interesting insights from practice.

The first event will focus on financial inclusion and put in perspective two different problems regarding the access to capital. The lack of capital in frontier markets and the overflow of easily accessible capital in developed countries and its connection to growing number of youth in debt. The event is for our network members only. Not a member yet? Apply with this membership application form.
