Inclusive Fintech

Accelerating the advances and adoption of technology in inclusive financial solutions

Inclusive Fintech applies modern technology (like APIs, machine learning, bitcoin/blockchain) and methodologies (agile software development, lean startup, experiments, MVPs, prototyping) to create meaningful financial solutions for low-income people. At its core, it seeks to leverage advances in digital and mobile technology to better serve the poor.

New “tech” applications are designed to reduce costs and risks for service providers while strengthening the business case for inclusive services and products. Inclusive Fintech works directly with startups, mobile network providers, and financial institutions to co-create fintech solutions.
