Writing Code. Fighting Poverty. Global Launch of the Mifos Initiative

Jun 12, 2014 · San Francisco, United States of America
We're excited to unveil the Mifos Initiative and launch the new Mifos X platform to bring financial services to the nearly 3 billion poor and unbanked worldwide -- which is proven to be the single most effective means to end poverty. Mifos X is supported by an incredible community built and guided by leaders of Silicon Valley. Using open technology, cloud computing, and mobile, we are radically transforming the war on global poverty with a goal of complete elimination.
Discover how you can be part of our global open source community. Join us for an evening of uplifting talks, eye-opening demos, beer, wine, and a sampling of international cuisine.

Join our global movement. Become part of our local Mifos chapter
Learn the many ways you can volunteer - coding, documentation, marketing, fundraising - we need you!

Hosted by Paul Maritz, CEO of Pivotal and Chairman of the Mifos Initiative
To best showcase the transformative power and potential of our platform, this event will focus on the faces of our community - featuring brief talks and stories from the Mifos leadership and board, our users and our volunteers. You’ll have the chance to see demos of the platform, chat with leaders of the community, and discover how you can help support the initiative by becoming a volunteer, advisor, or donor.
This event marks the launch of the Silicon Valley/Bay Area Mifos Chapter. It is also the first in a series of local events held worldwide as we kick off our network of local Mifos chapters. Stay tuned for when a local Mifos event is happening in your community.
