About our Speaker

Jessica Jackley
Founder and former Chief
Marketing Officer of KIVA

KIVA lets users lend as little as $25 to poor entrepreneurs around the world, providing affordable capital for them
to start or expand microenterprises. Since its founding in 2005, KIVA has loaned over $500 million from lenders
to entrepreneurs across 206 countries. For all its success, KIVA remains focused on a simple mission to connect
people through lending to alleviate poverty, one person at a time.

Jackley first saw the power and dignity of microfinance while working in East Africa with a microenterprise non-profit. Convinced that social change happens across all sectors, Jackley has worked in public, nonprofit, and private organizations including the Stanford Center for Social Innovation, Amazon.com, Potentia Media and many others.

Jackley is the recipient of the 2012 Symons Innovator Award, which recognizes the importance of women’s participation in technology innovation and business.
