Jacqueline Novogratz at TED: Ending Poverty in the Developing World

January 31, 2009

I only recently learned that the folks behind the long-running annual conference known as TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) are putting videos of some of the best talks from the conference online. (The challenge of a TED talk is that you have to say what you want to say in eighteen minutes or less.)

In the video below, Jacqueline Novogratz, the founder and CEO of the Acumen Fund, a nonprofit global venture fund, argues for a new approach to ending poverty in the developing world.

I hear that TED has quite a following online, with devotees of the conference sharing their favorites talks (two hundred or so have been posted to date) with friends and colleagues. So what are your favorites? Inquiring minds want to know....
