Kids and Money: Watch the replay of our Google Hangout with Jeroo Billimoria, founder of Child and Youth Finance International (and eight other social enterprises)

We’re excited to announce NextBillion Financial Innovation’s next Google Hangout. It will take place on Jan. 29 at 10:00 AM Eastern Standard (US) Time, and our guest will be pioneering social entrepreneur Jeroo Billimoria.

Billimoria is the founder of several award-winning international NGOs, including Aflatoun (Child Savings International), Childline India Foundation and Child Helpline International. Her success in bringing social ventures to global scale has earned her fellowships with Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, the Skoll Foundation and the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, and her work has been featured in Business Week, The Economist and a number of books.

She’s perhaps best known for her work promoting financial capability among young people, and she currently serves as the founder and managing director of Child and Youth Finance International.

We’re delighted to have the opportunity to bring her insights to you in a live interview format – and we’d like to make it as interactive as possible.

So if you have any questions that you’d like to ask Billimoria, you can share them in the comments section of this post, in an email ( or on Twitter (@NextBillionFI). We’ll ask as many audience questions as possible in the interview, but depending on the response, we may have to do so on a first-come/first-served basis. So please submit your questions ASAP.

You can watch the interview live on NextBillion Financial Innovation on Jan. 29 at 10:00 AM EST. Just come back to this post a little before 10:00 AM, and a Google Hangout video window will be embedded below. The video will start automatically, and it will be streamed and recorded to YouTube. The recorded video will remain embedded in this post, so you can view it at your convenience if you don’t have a chance to tune in for the live event.
