Transforming 500 million lives

Thursday 26 November 2020 – 12:00pm to 1:00pm

About this event

Over the next two years an estimated 500 million low to middle-income Indians are expected to come online for the first time via smart phones.

This provides an opportunity to transform these lives through the provision of vital services – including financial services, education, mobility, and healthcare.

Join us for a conversation with Roopa Kudva, Partner and Managing Director of Omidyar Network India, in which we explore how access to mobile technology is improving lives in low to middle-income countries. We discuss the drivers behind large scale social change, the role of innovation and entrepreneurship, and the opportunities for future growth in India and across Asia.
