DC Microfinance Meetup

Join a community of like-minded people for an after work happy hour to discuss current and future trends in financial inclusion and impact interpreneurship.
Our next speaker is Ben Powell – the Founder and CEO of Agora Partnerships.
Ben started as a co-founder of a small family entertainment park in Mexico, where he became convinced that the power of enterpreneurship can lift people out of poverty.
“A former presidential fellow with master’s degrees from Columbia Business School and Georgetown’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Powell founded Agora Partnerships to meet the needs of the “missing middle,” companies that are too large for microfinance lending but too small for traditional banks.” – DevEx
DevEx recently named Ben one of the top 40 under 40 development leaders in Washington, DC.
Katie Torrington, Senior Manager of Special Projects at FINCA International, will be moderating the discussion.

Special thanks to our hosts at the 1776 startup incubator for providing their venue in the heart of downtown DC.
