Changecorp promotes innovation in the Emerging Markets by implementing successful mobile learning solutions and designing programs that enable our clients to evaluate, scale and create sustainable and commercially viable business models.
The Mobile-Only Generation
Youth remain unemployed because their skills do not match the qualifications of the job. Mobile technology is increasingly being used to provide young boys and girls with tools that will empower their future. The panel will discuss how to create mobile skill-building commercial engagements that provide “end-to-end” benefits.
Mobile and Civil Society
Mobile is making a difference in the way the public sector partners with the private sector. Mobile provides greater opportunities for scale and sustainability. This panel will discuss how mobile services are utilized to transform education and simple behaviors at large.
