This year, we go global. And we’re hacking for good.

The pandemic has intensified some of the world’s most challenging issues – poverty, inequality and exclusion to name but a few. Digital infrastructure and technology are providing the platform to transform access to financial services for historically excluded populations and create better, fairer and more inclusive outcomes, and institutional opportunities for efficiency, growth and diversity.

Hack to the Future 2020 is focused on creating a brighter future that supports every person, business and community, through technology.
