was speaking at the Financial Inclusion Forum in Jakarta, organized by FinTechStage and sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Omidyar Network and HSBC.

Great line-up of speakers including Darmin Narsution (Coordinating Minister of Economic Affairs, Indonesia), Sri Mulyani Idrawati (Minister of Finance, Indonesia), Kosta Peric (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), Kabir Kumar (Omidyar Network), Sumit Dutta (HSBC), Gautam Jain (Standard Chartered), Muliaman Hadad (Indonesia Financial Services Authority OJK), Sopnandu Mohanty (Singapore MAS), Sanjay Jain (Aadhaar and India stack), Dan Morgan (Innovate Finance), Anju Patwardhan (CreditEase), Aditya Khurjekar (Medici / LTP), Julius Akinyemi (MIT Media Lab), and more from startups and others.

The need for Digital Identity kept coming back throughout the day and all the keynotes and deep-dives, resonating very well with Chekk’s cross-businesses, cross industries and cross-borders Digital Identity solution.

Thanks again to the sponsors and to Lazaro Campos and Matteo Rizzi of FinTechStage for this very good conference.
