Why are we celebrating failure? Innovation can’t happen without it — and we should understand how failure leads to greater insights and future success. In this webinar, Accion leads an open and honest discussion on the potential pitfalls and roadblocks to successfully applying data analytics to better serve underserved populations globally. During this session, leaders of Accion Microfinance Bank Nigeria and CÍVICO – all undertaking digital transformation efforts through Accion’s global partnership with Mastercard – discuss how their data failures shaped their path to success in digital transformation.

Data is a critical part of financial service providers’ digital transformation efforts. Success stories of providers using alternative data and artificial intelligence to better serve their customer are all around us, but what failures or challenges led to these successes?
