    Fintech for All: Why Technology Accessibility Matters

    Join us for this webinar to hear from an expert about the financial health challenges people with disabilities face and the opportunity to tailor fintech products and services to their needs.

    Fintech companies have an opportunity to better serve their customers and further their own diversity and inclusion efforts by improving the accessibility of their offerings. More than one in four U.S. households contains a child or an adult with a disability. For Americans with disabilities, accessing financial services is often a challenge, making it difficult or impossible to perform financial management tasks.

    Join us for this webinar to:

    • Hear from an expert about the financial health challenges people with disabilities face and the opportunity to tailor fintech products and services to their needs
    • Discuss innovations and solutions with the presenter

    Partnering for Impact
    The Financial Solutions Lab Exchange is a marketplace for interested nonprofit and fintech providers to explore collaboration and swap insights on how to build high-impact partnerships.

    Boundless Impact Research & Analytics: Rubber Isn’t Rubbish: Scrap Tires Join the Circular Economy

    Globally, 1.6 billion tires per year are disposed of improperly, including over 300 million scrap tires generated in the United States every year. A significant portion of that is either burned as tire-derived-fuel or land-disposed. The lasting effect of this is disastrous both environmentally and in terms of lost economic value. Luckily, entrepreneurs have been hard at work to turn the tide on this immense problem, turning what was previously conceived as trash into valuable materials through innovative cradle-to-cradle recycling infrastructure.

    This webinar will provide an overview of emerging technologies that enable tires to be brought into the circular economy, as well as insight into the hot waste-to-value market. We feature Boisson Consulting Founder Ed Boisson, Tyreflow Environmental President Bill Spire, Tyreflow CEO Jim Meckley, and Boundless Research Analyst Andreas van Giezen.

    Ed will present on the market opportunity of waste-to-value technologies with an emphasis on scrap tire recycling. Bill and Jim will discuss Tyreflow’s cradle-to-cradle recycling infrastructure for scrap tires. Andreas will present Boundless’ Climate Impact Assessment of Tyreflow. You won’t want to miss this fascinating and topical discussion on the future of the circular economy.

    Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST
