JOHANN GEVERS, Founder and CEO, Monetas
Half the world — over 3 billion adults — has no access to formal financial services, severely limiting their ability to generate wealth and raise their quality of life. New cryptofinance technologies such as the blockchain are all over the news and rapidly gaining traction. What exactly are these new technologies, and how can they help us build a more inclusive financial system that benefits everyone? Johann Gevers, a cryptofinance entrepreneur and visionary thought leader, will describe the cryptofinance revolution, and how it will create vast new economic opportunities and unprecedented social freedom.
ROBERT RUBINSTEIN, Founder & Chairman TBLI Group
Triple Bottom Line Group (TBLI) is about creating an inclusive values-based
economy. The aim is to maximise investment flows into sustainable businesses and initiatives by highlighting the benefits of triple bottom line investing.
