    Janine Firpo

    Janine Firpo has over 30 years experience in business, technology, and international development. Sevak Solutions was spun out of her work as Director, e-Inclusion at the Hewlett-Packard Corporation, where she led a number of initiatives that sought both financial and social returns. One of those efforts involved the development of business practices and technology solutions for next generation financial services delivery to the poor. Making the resultant Intellectual Property publicly available was the basis for creating Sevak Solutions.

    For the past several years, Janine's specialty has been financial services. She has been providing strategic and implementation support to mobile operators, financial institutions, and technology companies that are delivering innovative mobility centric financial solutions. Janine is a pioneer in the implementation of technology for social change, and has worked on issues related to health care, education, and supply chain in more than 40 countries around the world. Janine has held executive positions in both private and public organizations and brings over 30 years experience in business, technology, and international development to her efforts. She also served as the Executive Director of XS Project, a non-profit based in Indonesia that creates and sells consumer products made from recycled trash.
