Report of October 10, 2018
Helke Seitz and Tim Kaiser contributed with the topic "Promoting financial inclusion: New policies and technological innovations through digital finance" to the Young Economic Summit 2018! The topic was chosen by the Berlin International School Team II. The team tackled this topic by suggesting a digital platform which they called "Virgo". The idea of Virgo is to increase the accessibility of basic financial services in developing countries. The Berlin International School Team II presented their solution during the regional final and ranked second! By this they qualified for the national final in Hamburg and were among the finalists! The 12 chosen finalists presented their solutions, discussed with experts and enjoyed two exciting and inspiring days in Hamburg.
Congratulations to the team for this success!
