Ken Banks

Technology-led Social Innovation: Opportunity, Issues and Potential

Ken Banks, Founder of kiwanja.net and creator of messaging platform FrontlineSMS, devotes himself to the application of mobile technology for positive social and environmental change in the developing world. He has worked at the intersection of technology, anthropology, conservation and development for the past twenty-five years and, during that time, has lived and worked across the African continent. He is a PopTech Fellow, a Tech Awards Laureate, an Ashoka Fellow and a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, and has been internationally recognised for his technology-based work. In 2013 he was nominated for the TED Prize, and in 2015 was a Visiting Fellow at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. In late 2015 Ken was appointed CARE International’s first Entrepreneur in Residence. He is also a published author, with his first edited book, The Rise of the Reluctant Innovator, self-published in late 2013 with a follow-up, published by Kogan Page, Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation: International Case Studies and Practice, released in March 2016. In this talk, Ken will talk about the challenges of social innovation and international development, and how innovation happens ‘in the wild’ vs. in more controlled environments.
