Discussing Technology, Education and Entrepreneurship

Posted By Page Schindler Buchanan, Thursday, September 19, 2013

Page Schindler BuchananThis morning we participated in a lively discussion hosted by Business Fights Poverty about education, employment, entrepreneurship and technology that was inspired by our recent discussion paper, Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship: A Snapshot of the Global Jobs Challenge.

The discussion centered around the question: How can business education make a difference in people's lives and livelihoods?


We discussed the role of business education and the real life needs of women who are, or would like to be, entrepreneurs; the potential for technology to provide access to information, training and networks like never before; and the importance of material that is locally and personally relevant to the entrepreneurs.

The panel included myself, our current Programs Intern Miebi Ifie, who recently spent time working with women entrepreneurs in Ghana with Global Mamas, and Evanna Hu, co-founder of a mobile education company - g.Maarifa

This live-chat was part of a week-long blog article series on the same topic.
