The EWB-NY Appropriate Tech Design Team is joining forces with our friends at Inside Startups for an evening of networking and a film screening to inspire reflection and debate.
Join us to meet new colleagues and collaborators in the technology for development sector and challenge your perception of what 'fighting poverty' can mean.
Networking (with light refreshments and wine) will start at 6:00 pm.
Film screening to follow at 6:45 pm. We will be showing POVERTY, INC.
Fighting poverty is big business. But who profits the most? From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, POVERTY, INC. plays the gadfly in the this eye-opening examination of Western interventions in the developing world.
Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore and challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?
Poverty, Inc. has earned 40 international film festival honors and 12 awards, screening in 16 countries and attracting worldwide distribution. Check out the trailer.
Our venue sponsor is Rise NY an organization committed to bringing together the world’s best and brightest start-ups and experts to create the future of financial services.
