Ewa Wojkowska: Life-Changing Technology for the Last Mile

Ewa Wojkowska left a decade of service with the United Nations to launch Kopernik – an on-line marketplace for technology designed for the developing world.  Since its launch in 2010, Kopernik has reached 65,000 people with life-changing technology – such as solar lanterns, fuel efficient stoves and water purifiers – to communities in the ‘last mile’ – many across Indonesia.  Ewa will talk about the unique Kopernik model as well as some of the successes and challenges with setting up distribution channels in remote rural communities.
