“Third World Africa and African Urban #America have the same problems and solutions. Poverty can be eradicated by access to fintech through any mobile device,” said Dr. Lance. “There are platforms developed by my esteemed panelists that can create a global economic empowerment to those of African descent. “
Since 2018, Digital.Davos has welcomed presidents, prime ministers, #CEOs, Fortune 100 billionaires, and A-list celebrities. Global innovators and thought leaders in BioTech, FinTech, blockchain, and beyond discuss responses and real solutions to today’s problems.
