Market disruptions happen. But, they often leave the people on the frontlines of those markets to pick up the pieces. Host Matt Schaar talks with Tim Rann and Ken Kou of Mercy Corps Ventures about how their team is investing in and testing blockchain-enabled solutions to determine if this relatively new technology can help build resilience in underserved communities and equip them to bounce back after market shocks.

Tim and Ken share Mercy Corps Ventures’ journey into web3, including which models they’re investing in and testing to build inclusive fintech systems that allow communities to recover quickly when disruptions affect their market. They also share ways to build responsible solutions in the risky — and potentially harmful — crypto-enabled world.
