Jessica Jackley – Empowering Entrepreneurs: Connection and Capital
Jessica touches on paradigms, beliefs, and how to question our everyday assumptions. She questions our definition of “entrepreneur” and decided to find a way to spread resources to the entrepreneurs who could use it.
Jessica co-founded Kiva.org, which enables people to fund entrepreneurial ventures in relatively poor communities and become personally connected to that specific entrepreneur. Kiva has facilitated over 200 million in loans among people in 210 Countries.
