Hello Everyone,

I'd like to welcome you back to Change for the 2017 Winter Quarter.

Please join us tomorrow for a talk and discussion about digital financial
services for the poor.  Jake Kendall will be joining us to to talk about the
Digital Financial Service Innovation Lab <http://www.dfslab.net/> which is
part of Caribou Digital <http://cariboudigital.net/>.  His group is helping
jump-start lots of exciting financial inclusion projects and recently
conducted a design sprint in Dar es Salaam.


Jake is a visiting researcher in ICTD at UW CSE
<http://dfs.cs.washington.edu/> focusing on fintech innovations for
developing countries. He is also the Director of the Digital Financial
Services Innovation Lab (DFS Lab <http://dfslab.net/>) housed at Caribou
Digital. The DFSLab engages in seed stage investing and rapid prototyping
of internally-generated ideas to create fintech innovations that will
profitably bring households in developing countries from the cash economy
into the digital financial realm. Formerly Jake was Deputy Director of
Research and Emerging Technologies within the Financial Services for the
Poor Team at the Gates Foundation where his team helped create the global
data architecture for tracking financial inclusion.
