“Building Businesses with Impact: A Roadmap for Empowering Leaders”

The 4.5 billion poorest people on this planet, often referred to as the base of the pyramid (BoP), lack affordable access to goods and services that could dramatically improve the quality their lives.  Despite decades of effort and billions of dollars invested, we have found that we cannot donate our way out of poverty.  These efforts must be complemented by an expanded role for business.

Results from the field demonstrate that business can deliver value and impact to the BoP, and that the potential to do so profitably is enormous.  Yet unleashing the full promise of creating sustainable and scalable businesses that truly alleviate poverty remains elusive.  In particular, enterprise leaders have lacked a holistic roadmap that guides their journey to sustainability at scale.

The focus of this talk is on better understanding the opportunities and challenges in building successful businesses that target some of world’s poorest citizens.  This includes discussing the Sustainability at Scale toolkit, designed to empower enterprise leaders with actionable strategies, frameworks and processes as they navigate the complexities of an unfamiliar and impoverished market environment.
