Hear from some of the world’s most promising social entrepreneurs who are tackling issues of poverty and the planet at Miller Center’s 2018 GSBI Investor Showcase at Santa Clara University on Wednesday, August 15, 2018.
These social entrepreneurs are on a mission to provide those most in need with safe drinking water, improved livelihoods, access to education, agricultural support, and so much more.
The presenting for-profit and nonprofit organizations are participating in Miller Center’s signature 10-month accelerator program —accompanied by assigned Silicon Valley executive mentors— and will showcase plans to scale their solutions to impact even more lives across the globe.
Guru Arjan Dev Institute of Development Studies (IDSAsr) has organized the 9th IDSAsr National Seminar on the theme Financial Inclusion in the Digital Economy. The seminar will aim to reorient the process of financial inclusions towards sustainability, which in turn has the potential to impact the way people think.
Millions of families live on the border between self-sufficiency and destitution, and financial exclusion pushes them in the wrong direction. That’s why the government of India has set the goal of establishing a banking outlet in every village.
The seminar will help to equip people with knowledge and skills making them more competent and confident while at the same time increasing their opportunities for leading a healthy and productive lifestyle in harmony with nature and with concern for social values, gender equity and cultural diversity.
In honor of our 10th anniversary, the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion (CFI) invites you to participate in a one-day symposium, Getting Inclusion Right, to be held at The National Press Club in Washington, DC on November 1, 2018.
Come join a select group of actors and influencers in the financial inclusion arena as we consider what we must get right if financial inclusion is to reach its full promise – access to a full suite of financial services delivered with quality to all who can use them to improve their lives.
We will convene a variety of distinguished thinkers and practitioners for a day of discussion and debate to help set the agenda for the next decade.
The ILO’s Impact Insurance Academy is a unique opportunity to learn from the ten years of experience and innovations in inclusive insurance facilitated by the ILO’s Impact Insurance Facility.

USAID’s Asia Bureau, through the Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project, has been working in Burma and Indonesia to build local capacity for using implementation research as a tool to design and improve systems that support universal health coverage (UHC).
This briefing will discuss how to make implementation research tangible and accessible to donors, researchers, and country stakeholders pursuing UHC in different country contexts. Using lessons learned from Burma and Indonesia – two countries at different stages of the journey to reach UHC – we will discuss the challenges of context, timing, and organizational structure when planning implementation research for UHC, as well as how to encourage the use of implementation research findings to strengthen UHC-related policies and their implementation.
This event will take place at the USAID Global Health Bureau and will be live streamed through Adobe Connect.

This training is NOT about how to raise money in the Silicon Valley style where your investors will expect you to grow as fast as possible at any cost so that the company can be acquired in 5-7 years and the investors make a killing. We will not waste your time teaching you how to make yourself more appealing to this kind of investor! Why? Because in our opinion, that model is wrong for 99.9% of businesses – especially woman-owned mission-driven businesses.
This training event IS about designing a capital raising strategy customized to your unique situation, values, structure, and goals. Our approach works for companies at any stage and in any industry.
Fund and Fuel Your Dreams is a 3-day intensive event where you will get hands-on, expert training on how to raise money for your business. You will leave with a step-by-step plan and resources to move the plan forward. At the event there will be opportunities for support from experts on messaging, your financials, and more. This is also a place to connect with like-minded mission-driven, heart-centered women entrepreneurs in a supportive fun environment! You’ll even have an opportunity to hear from socially conscious investors who are especially interested in women-led businesses!
