Details About the talk

Iqbal Quadir conta como as suas experiências enquanto criança num país pobre como o Bangladesh e, mais tarde, como banqueiro em Nova Iorque, o levaram a fundar uma empresa operadora de telemóveis, e ligar 80 milhões de aldeões do Bangladesh nas zonas rurais — tornando-se num campeão de desenvolvimento "bottom-up".
