Mastercard joins the Aspen Institute for the Global Inclusive Growth Summit

Washington D.C. | October 21, 2019

Master Your Card was delighted to attend the Global Inclusive Growth Summit, co-hosted by the Aspen Institute and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth. At this year’s Summit, attendees convened with purpose-driven leaders to discuss equitable growth in the context of rapid technological change and the digital economy. Participants and attendees included former government officials, prominent business executives and leading NGO executives. The Summit shined a spotlight on innovative, data-driven and commercially sustainable solutions to build an inclusive economy.

The Summit also unveiled the creation of the Aspen Partnership for an Inclusive Economy (APIE), a multi-year Mastercard-Aspen partnership that will combine the ideas, talents, and resources of the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to address income and information inequality through the lens of inclusive growth. The partnership is anchored by a $26 million investment from Mastercard and the Center for Inclusive growth will serve as the founding partner of APIE and leverage the assets of Mastercard – people, data insights, technology and a global network – to ensure that the digital economy works for everyone, everywhere.
