Rapidly Expanding Economies

From Entrepreneurial Philanthropy to Macro-Finance Solutions to Poverty

— January 29, 2016 — Keynote Trends
These African business talks offer a different point of view on the continent's economy. While many mistakenly view the developing countries there as mired in absolute poverty, there are many sound investment opportunities as locals and foreigners launch new ventures there.

In one of the African business talks, Charles Robertson explores expansive foreign economies. His innovation speech examines positive growth in capital income, which doubled since 2000. He projects the African economy to grow from $2 trillion to $29 trillion by 2050.

Jessica Jackley introduces small business models to empower new business ideas in developing communities. As the founder of crowdfunding site Kiva, she believes in the power of microlending and microfinancing to provide alternative sources of income. Sangu Delle takes an opposite approach in favor of macro solutions. The financier suggests backing pan-African entrepreneurs to make a higher impact towards economic freedom.
