Global Launch of the Mifos Initiative – Pivotal Labs in SF June 11 at 630pm

We’re less than one week away from our Mifos Initiative Launch Event in downtown San Francisco at Pivotal Labs on June 11 at 630pm. Paul Maritz has been eager to host an event to build consciousness of our initiative in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley so we’re excited to finally make it a reality!

Since we are bringing so many people together for this special event, we’re going to formally launch the Mifos Initiative and the latest release of the Mifos X platform. At the event we’ll be telling some of the amazing stories about the many individuals in our community who are the heart, soul, and brilliance that powers our initiative. Reuniting past supporters and invigorating a new set of contributors, we’ll kick off our Silicon Valley/Bay Area Mifos chapter. This group will be an active body of committed volunteers that is evangelizing our project to recruit new volunteers, bring on new financial supporters and form new partnerships to extend our platform and market reach.

We know that as of late, there has been a lot of soul-searching in Silicon Valley as it takes at look at what social impact its enabling as the giant economic and political force it’s become. We’ve titled the event, Writing Code. Fighting Poverty. Silicon Valley Gives Back through the Mifos Initiative. Our community is a perfect example of Silicon Valley using its collective resources and mindshare for good by mobilizing a community and building a platform that is fundamentally transforming how financial services are brought to the poor.

Please attend our event and tell all your friends. RSVP now via EventBrite – the guest list is growing and we hope to fill the room!

Writing Code. Fighting Poverty.
Silicon Valley Gives Back through the Mifos Initiative

We’re excited to unveil the Mifos Initiative and launch the new Mifos X platform to bring financial services to the nearly 3 billion poor and unbanked worldwide — which is proven to be the single most effective means to end poverty. Mifos X is supported by an incredible community built and guided by leaders of Silicon Valley. Using open technology, cloud computing, and mobile, we are radically transforming the war on global poverty with a goal of complete elimination.
