The Future of Work:
Managing Money for Inclusive Growth


This event has been postponed due to Covid-19.

New event date TBA

at the offices of MasterCard NYC Technology Hub
114 5th Ave, New York, NY 10011

Work is changing. Long-term jobs with benefits are becoming less common; the gig economy is growing. This contributes to greater income inequality and reduced social mobility, which feeds social, economic, and political instability. Which no one wants. Business leaders and entrepreneurs see this; companies large and small are building solutions; mobile and prepaid provide platforms for delivery. What are solutions, how can they help, and will they work?

Join NYPAY at Mastercard’s Technology Hub to learn and discuss this ever more important topic.
