In the last two decades, hundreds of new products, technologies and services have been designed to serve the nearly 4 billion people emerging out of global poverty. Many of these innovations held great promise for significant social impact, but far fewer have fulfilled their potential to solve poverty issues at large scale. Inclusive business is one strategy to drive innovative and locally relevant market-based solutions that include and benefit the base of the pyramid (BoP) populations, while also building markets, strengthening supply chains, and enhancing long-term competitiveness. Successful, scalable enterprises and technologies in these markets are not business as usual and require innovation and iteration.
