Social entrepreneur Jessica Jackley talks entrepreneurial potential around the globe, even in the world’s poorest countries. She’s the co-founder of Kiva, the first online microlending platform for the working poor. In Clay Water Brick: Finding Inspiration from Entrepreneurs Who Do the Most with the Least, she argues that entrepreneurship can be a powerful force for change and shares lessons learned from successful businesses around the world. She’ll be joined by local entrepreneurs Marcia Brown, who started an e-commerce supplying quality hair extensions and hair products, and Armando Batista, who created Kapow, which provides customers a healthy way to eat fruits and veggies through a jam.
