New technology and applications have the potential to better reach underserved populations, navigate market gaps, and allow developing countries to leapfrog outdated models entirely. Technology is also improving the development community’s reach and efficiency, radically changing the way social entrepreneurs work. In a series of short talks, this session highlights five breakthrough technologies: digital currencies, drone delivery, remote sensing technology for agriculture, 3D mapping of oceans, and self-powered mobile wifi; and explores the potential each has to disrupt accepted methods of promoting social and environmental progress.
