Hunger. Poverty. Climate Change. Migration. In a world of complex challenges, how can technology and social ventures offer innovative solutions to improve the lives of millions of people?

Join Mercy Corps team members Amanda West and Ric Shreves to hear how we’re using the latest technologies--like blockchain and heat mapping--and investing in new business models that create sustainable impact around the world.

And as a special treat, we'll be joined by Mercy Corps' Social Venture Fund portfolio company Vega Coffee. They'll tell you firsthand how their startup is disrupting the coffee supply chain by allowing farmers to roast their own coffee and sell it directly to you--reaping the financial benefits they greatly deserve.
