SurveyCTO Webinar Series – Tech in 2020: Discussing Trends and Responses to COVID-19 with Dobility’s CEO and CTO
In November 2020, Dobility welcomed Lawrence Li as President and CEO. In his letter to users and partners, Lawrence speaks to the critical need for safe, high-quality data, particularly now. As we near the end of 2020, Lawrence and Dr. Chris Robert, Founder and CTO, are sitting down to discuss the technology sector’s immediate response to COVID-19 and how that response has evolved throughout the year.
Dobility’s CEO and CTO will also discuss the evolution of SurveyCTO’s platform for user and data safety, particularly the addition of phone surveying and decentralized data collection features, resources, and support. And finally, Lawrence and Chris will share how SurveyCTO and the Safe People + Data Initiative will continue to address changing needs in response to the global pandemic in 2021.
Whether you are new to SurveyCTO or used the platform for years, we welcome you to join Lawrence and Chris on December 9th at 9am ET/ 2pm UTC. This webinar will be a thirty-minute conversation followed by Q&A from the audience.
Time: 9:00 AM ET / 2:00 PM UTC
ANDE India, in partnership with Samhita – CGF and U.S Agency for International Development is organising an informational webinar on Dec 9th on the REVIVE alliance.
In a bid to restore livelihoods lost during the COVID-19 crisis, REVIVE, an initiative by Samhita-CGF, supported by USAID, MSDF and Omidyar India Network, has launched a $6.85 million blended finance facility in its first phase, to leverage private and philanthropic funding to provide accessible and affordable capital in the form of returnable grants or loans to workers and at-risk nano and micro enterprises.
REVIVE will create a positive impact on economic activity, self-employment, and household consumption, giving workers and small businesses the agency to pay their dues, buy daily business supplies and invest in protective gear and other operations to sustain and thrive. Participating companies and foundations could impact 3-5X the number of people over a 3-year period through the revolving grant facility. Godrej Consumer Products Limited, Arvind Limited, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Brihati Foundation powered by Claris, HSBC and RBL Bank are onboard the Alliance.Through this, we aim to engage you on the following themes:
- Global and Indian companies and foundations reviving micro-entrepreneurs in the supply chain, distribution network and communities, and providing support to laid off workers
- Social enterprises, entrepreneurs and support organisations and nonprofits connecting their portfolio to this much needed resource
- Various financial instruments that could be provided under the REVIVE banner to create a continuum of capital
