ENDPOVERTY 2017 BUSINESS SUMMIT
November 17, 2017 @ 8:00 AM—November 19, 2017 @ 5:00 PM EST$895 – $1095
The Bretton Woods Conference, officially known as the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference, was a gathering of delegates from 44 nations that met from July 1 to 22, 1944 in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. A major accomplishment of the conference was the creation of the World Bank. After the reconstruction of Europe, the World Bank’s mandate changed to the eradication of poverty world wide.
The poverty reduction industry consists of a lot of dedicated people working in charitable and governmental paradigms which are not sustainable.
Businesses and individuals support this industry through taxes and donations, often with minimal transparency.
Poverty reduction often equates to unsustainable subsidies and hand outs which are often exchanged by governments for votes.
The primary employment for the poor is that of self-employment, not employment, yet the vast majority of employees of non-profits and government agencies have never been self-employed.
The conference will feature three tracks.
Track 1: EndPoverty Business…A new paradigm for poverty reduction sustainability. Businesses and Investorsnominated for the EndPoverty 2017 Business Awards will present their case studies about how they have invested in sustainable jobs, products and/or services that lift the livelihoods of the poor.
Track 2: EndPoverty Startups…A new paradigm for poverty reduction solutions. Startups nominated for the EndPoverty 2017 Startup Awards will present their case studies about how they have successfully and sustainably developed jobs, products and/or services that lift the livelihoods of the poor.
- Track 3: EndPoverty Business Challenge… A new paradigm for poverty reduction problem-solving. Business Challenge Teams formed virtually before the conference, will present their solution outcomes for the EndPoverty 2017 Business Challenge Awards in connection with poverty problems in health, housing, environment, food, clean water, sanitation, and education.
