The lives of businesspeople are very tough, we know. That’s why BBVA makes a big effort to make their life easier: it’s the revolution of small things. Imagine yourself advancing your invoices after going for a stroll in Central Park or making transfers while you wait to go up to the Eiffel Tower. With one hand you can enjoy some delicious fish and chips while with the other you browse to find out about the status of your orders.

Private industry leaders gathered at BBVA Compass Plaza in Houston for a workshop Tuesday on how businesses can push progress on the most pressing issues of our time. The workshop, hosted by BBVA Compass, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals Fund and the BBVA Microfinance Foundation, had two goals: to help spread the word and build understanding of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which revolve around issues like education, health, poverty alleviation, clean water and the climate; and to gather input from executives at some of the companies that are already focused on tackling some of those same issues.
