  3. 3. 31 OCTOBER - 3 NOVEMBER 2011, DUBAIWelcome to Connected World ForumDear Colleagues,It is with the utmost pride and pleasure that I welcome you to the very first Connected World Forum.As many of you know, my team and I have been working in the mobile money space for the past four years, the mobilehealth space for the last two, and over the past 12 months have witnessed an increasing amount of convergence across technologiesand applications. For these reasons we felt 2011 was the right time to bring together our mobile money and mobile health conferencesto form Connected World Forum - a large scale, multi tracked conference that focuses specifically on the future of mobile life servicesacross Money, Health, Education, Ticketing and Agriculture.I’d like to thank our Operator Partners Vodafone and Telenor plus our platinum sponsor ProgressSoft , all of our sponsors, exhibitorsand partners, for supporting our vision of bringing together so many key stakeholders from across the various mobile lifeline verticals.In areas such as these, open platforms, common standards and honest dialogues are imperative for driving subscriptions, usage andlife changing innovation.We’ve got a wonderful speaker roster at Connected World Forum, representing key mobile life programs from across both emerging anddeveloped markets - I thank them all for their invaluable contributions this week.I hope you all visit the booths in our new extended exhibition area and get to listen to a number of the technology demonstrations that willtake place during breaks on the expo show floor.I hope the event serves your needs well and you meet the people that you need to. If you need any assistance at all over the coming fewdays, don’t hesitate to contact me or a member of my team – we’ll be happy to help.Warm regardsSteve ClarkeFounder, Connected World ForumWelcome from VodafoneThe mobile phone is one of the transformational technologies to emerge from the twentieth century, another is the Internet. These twoplatforms are now coming together and their convergence means that true global connectivity isalmost upon us.The progression from voice to data via mobile is expected to be just as transformational as the initial rise of mobile phones. Soon the firstinternet experience for many will be through a mobile device, as mobiles are more affordable and mobile networks more pervasive thanfixed line alternatives. This is particularly evident in emerging economies where the lack of infrastructure has meant that mobiles havebecome a platform for innovation across multiple sectors including better healthcare delivery, improved farming practices and access tofinancial services. Consider, for example, the success of our own money transfer service M-PESA, that now has over 20 million customersand regularly transfers over US$ 500 million a month. ‘Connectivity’ in emerging economies really means ‘mobile connectivity’.Vodafone is excited to be a leader – along with key industry, government and NGO partners – in making possible these transformationalinnovations that improve the lives of hundreds of millions around the world. We are honoured to be the Operator Sponsor of thisyear’s Connected World Forum/Mobile Money event and welcome both your participation and the chance to work with you as mobilecommunications seek to change the world, again.Matthew Kirk,Group External Affairs Director,Vodafonet. +44 (0) 20 7067 1831 3

  15. 15. Mobile Money Advisory Board Abhishek Sinha, Eko India Financial Services Abhishek is responsible for the strategy and vision of Eko. His focus areas are regulations, compliance, corporate governance, generating disruptive business ideas, and building the leadership team at Eko. He also plays supportive roles to his colleagues in the areas of business development, product architecture and fund raising. Abhishek believes in the creation of wealth and degrees of freedom. After a short stint in the telecom division of Satyam, Abhishek discovered that his true calling was entrepreneurship. He co-founded Six DEE Telecom Solutions,a telecom value added services company and grew the business to span nine countries and fifteen operators. In February 2007, Abhishek exited SixDEE to pursue his vision to promote mobile phones as a financial identity for people at the bottom of the pyramid. His passion for simplicity of userexperience and zeal for democratizing access through cost-reduction, led to the development of the basic principles on which Eko is based. Those ideaswere validated when he won the TIE-Canaan Entrepreneurial Challenge, 2006. Abhishek continued to learn from Telecom and tailor technology as wellas business processes to suit the needs of the financially excluded. The merit of the idea to use mobile technology as a means to achieve scale and costeffectiveness for financial service delivery were re-confirmed during a chance visit by Mr. Bill Gates in November 2008. Abhishek dreams of a cashlessworld where every individual could be a merchant and every phone, the equivalent of an ATM.
