WHAT:
A high-level discussion on financial inclusion. Access to credit is a challenge for many of today’s entrepreneurs and microbusiness owners, especially those in underserved communities. Clearly, the rapid advancement of innovations in financial technology and the availability of data, are breaking down some of the barriers. But many questions/obstacles remain. While non-banking institutions, many operating primarily online, have served as the main drivers of credit growth for small businesses, increasingly mainstream banking institutions are now engaged. What is the impact, for instance, when one of the largest banks in the nation joins forces with the leader in innovative credit technology? Please join us for this enlightening conversation, which will answer some of the questions about the future access to credit for Main Street business owners and some of the nation’s smallest businesses.

WHEN:
Wednesday, May 18, 2016 3:45pm - 4:15pm

WHERE:
Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill
Regency Ballroom
400 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001
