In June 2017, FMO, Accion Venture Lab, and Quona Capital hosted the CEO Forum and Fintech for Inclusion Global Summit 2017, a unique, two-day gathering that brought together more than 40 Accion Venture Lab, Accion Frontier Inclusion Fund, FMO, and Catalyst Fund partner CEOs. On the first day, the executives came together to exchange insights on key leadership and strategic business challenges facing inclusive fintech startups, and opportunities to overcome them. The following day, the Fintech for Inclusion Global Summit convened our CEOs with more than 200 ecosystem partners – impact investors, bankers, venture capitalists, and other financial inclusion industry leaders – who could help their businesses grow. The event fostered a peer-learning community to advance participants’ shared interest in innovation and inclusive finance.
