    Innovation and Technology Forum (FIT) 2016

    Innovation and Technology Forum (FIT) 2016 is part of Yayasan Inovasi Teknologi Indonesia (INOTEK) efforts to support the creation and development of high-impact and commercially viable invention-based startups and small and growing businesses (SGBs) that serve Bottom-of-the Pyramid (BOP) consumers.

    INDONESIA’S PREMIER PLATFORM FOR INVENTION-BASED ENTERPRISES

    FIT 2016 is an inclusive event designed as a platform for all stakeholders in the invention-based space to share knowledge, collaborate and forge partnerships. It is held annually since 2012 and over the years has become one of the premier events for invention-based stakeholders in Indonesia, attracting participants from diverse backgrounds, such as entrepreneurs, business incubators, academics, government officials, impact investors and philanthropy organizations.

    FIT 2016: SCALABLE IMPACT

    This year, INOTEK, generously supported by The Lemelson Foundation and in collaboration with Akselerasi Inovasi – Bogor Agriculture Institute (Akselerasi – IPB), will hold FIT 2016 on 19-21 October 2016 at IPB International Convention Center in Bogor, West Java.

    The theme for FIT 2016 is “Scalable Impact” and this year’s event will bring together an array of thought leaders and practitioners to discuss the untapped social, environmental and economic development opportunities of high-impact and commercially viable invention-based enterprises serving BOP consumers as well as their challenges.

     CAPACITY BUILDING PLATFORM

    FIT 2016 is part of INOTEK’s efforts to develop the capacity of high-impact and commercially viable invention-based startups and SGBs. It also provides the opportunity for business incubators, accelerators and other stakeholders with interest in supporting invention-based startups and SGBs to gain access to tools and information that can help them to further support the development of invention-based startups and SGBs.

    SHOWCASING TECHNOLOGY FOR DEVELOPMENT

    FIT 2016 is designed to acknowledge and celebrate the role of high-impact and commercially viable invention-based technologies in supporting sustainable and inclusive economic development. As such, the event features an “Innovation Space” where selected innovators, inventors, and invention-based startups and SGBs serving BOP consumers showcase and introduce their innovation and technologies. Most importantly, “Innovation Space” will provide participants with a firsthand view of some of Indonesia’s most promising, both from impact and commercial perspectives, invention-based enterprises that serve BOP consumers.

    The Mastercard Foundation Symposium on Financial Inclusion 2016

    The MasterCard Foundation Symposium on Financial Inclusion promotes the idea that banks and other financial service providers in developing countries should focus on the needs and expectations of people living in poverty.

    We believe that universal access to finance, embedded in the Sustainable Development Goals, can be achieved only if economically disadvantaged people have access to safe, affordable and convenient financial products and services. That can occur only if financial service providers truly understand the complex financial lives of poor people and design and deliver products that respond to them.

    We look forward to continuing this important conversation with our invitees before and during the 2016 Symposium on October 20-21 in Kigali.

    International Monetary Fund World Bank Group Annual Meeting

    The Boards of Governors of the IMF and the World Bank Group normally meet once a year to discuss the work of their respective institutions. The Annual Meetings, which generally take place in September/October, have customarily been held in Washington for two consecutive years and in another member country in the third year.

    The Inaugural Meeting of the Boards of Governors was held in Savannah, Georgia, USA in March 1946. The first Annual Meetings were held in Washington in 1946.

    The Annual Meetings include meetings of the International Monetary and Financial Committee, the Development Committee, the Group of Ten, the Group of Twenty-Four, and various other constituencies. At the conclusion of their meetings, the International Monetary and Financial Committee and the Development Committee, as well as several other groups, issue communiqués. The Annual Meetings will include a plenary session, at which Governors take up matters of business. At the Annual Meetings, the Boards of Governors make decisions on how current international monetary issues should be addressed and approve corresponding resolutions. The Annual Meetings are chaired by a Governor of the IMF and the Bank, with the chairmanship rotating among the membership each year. Every two years it elects Executive Directors. Each year any new members are welcomed into the IMF and the Bank.

    Because the Annual Meetings bring such a large number of member country officials together, they provide opportunities for consultations large and small, formal and informal. Numerous seminars are held in conjunction with the meetings, including seminars conducted by staff members for members of the press. These seminars are designed to foster creative dialogue among the private sector, government delegates, and senior IMF and Bank officials. The Per Jacobsson Lecture on international finance, which is sponsored by a foundation set up in honor of the IMF’s third Managing Director, is also given each year in conjunction with the Meetings.

    Financial Inclusion Week 2016

    During the week of October 17-21, 2016, stakeholders across the globe will organize and participate in conversations exploring the most important steps to achieving full financial inclusion, a state in which everyone who can use them has access to a full suite of quality financial services, provided at affordable prices, in a convenient manner, with respect and dignity. Within this vision, financial services are delivered by a range of providers, in a stable, competitive market to financially capable clients.

    Events will focus on how to ensure that clients are empowered and protected in a financial ecosystem that has moved beyond brick and mortar to cell phones and internet delivery channels. Last year, from November 2-6, 34 partner organizations engaged in conversations worldwide to discuss the most pressing actions needed to advance financial inclusion globally. In 2016, we aim to continue these conversations and engage an even wider community of stakeholders to discuss this year’s theme:  keeping clients first in a digital world.
