Growing interest in the role of market-based solutions in addressing the problems of poverty has led to the emergence of many new and promising business models. These inclusive businesses can be powerful agents of change whether by bringing safe drinking water to slums, powering remote villages, or connecting farmers to markets. Yet very few of these models have been able to operate at scale. Why?
Join our panel of experts as we discuss the findings from a new report from Monitor Inclusive Markets, following on from their 2012 report,From Blueprint to Scale. We’ll explore the barriers faced by inclusive businesses as they take on some of the world’s toughest problems, and how we can work to overcome them to accelerate achieving impact at scale.
