2012 San Diego Microfinance Summit: Technology and Innovation

How the development of innovative strategies and new technologies are changing the face of microfinance.

Microfinance institutions and the small businesses they support are often challenged to accomplish more with fewer resources. Join us as we survey innovative microfinance models and explore new technologies that are being used to encourage business growth and create positive change in the San Diego community and beyond. Even if you've participated in previous summits, this year’s event promises to offer fresh topics and new speakers as we focus on highlighting the innovative strategies contributing to positive microfinance efforts in the greater San Diego region.

Highlights of this year’s event include:

  • Pre-summit networking mixer at The Ritual Tavern, a local microfinance client (optional)
  • Breakfast provided by clients
  • Catered lunch provided by local restaurateurs who are microfinance clients
  • Artisan marketplace wherein microfinance clients will showcase their wares and services
  • Three afternoon breakout topics offered during two sessions
  • Closing reception featuring giveaways from client businesses

Registration price includes summit, refreshments, catered lunch, $10 marketplace voucher and closing reception (pre-summit mixer additional).

Event presented by the San Diego Microfinance Alliance
