JSI’s SXSW Panel: Tech Solutions in International Development

March 9, 2017

On March 12th, JSI’s Anne LaFond will join panelists from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, PATH, and Claro Partners on a SXSW social impact panel, exploring the design and deployment of technology solutions in international development work and the lessons learned.

Technology helps the international development world to deliver solutions cheaper and faster, but not always better. Implementing technology solutions poses challenges as well as opportunities: How do you start the development process from the right set of questions? How do you develop technology that connects with people in meaningful ways? How do you deploy technology solutions in a way that is sustainable and scalable?

If you’re attending the SXSW festival in Austin, be sure to join the conversation:
Date: Sunday, March 12th 11am-noon
Location: JW Marriott in Room 201-202
