Our new products will be designed for global markets: Pawan Munjal, MD and CEO, Hero MotoCorp - The Economic Times | Innovation for all | Scoop.it
The Pawan Munjal-led Hero MotoCorp does not seem to be in a mood to leave any stone unturned to retain its 'numero uno' position in the two-wheeler industry.

 

We have a huge focus on the entry-level segment. If you look at the bottom of the pyramid, there is a large section, which does not use any two-wheeler today, and therefore, there is immense potential.

Shampoo, saris and SIM cards: seeking entrepreneurial futures at the bottom of the pyramid (BoP) | Oxfam GB

Shampoo, saris and SIM cards: seeking entrepreneurial futures at the bottom of the pyramid (BoP) | Oxfam GB | Innovation for all | Scoop.it

In recent years bottom-of-the-pyramid (BoP) models have emerged as a popular strategy for offering poor women the opportunity to earn an income by distributing goods and services door-to-door.

 

In this article, we explore one recent example of BoP entrepreneurship: the CARE Bangladesh Rural Sales Program (RSP). The RSP is a partnership between CARE and several multinational and domestic companies that seeks to provide poor women with an opportunity to participate in new forms of economic activity, offering them a prospect to earn an independent income and provide a better future for their family by selling a mix of multinational and locally produced consumer goods across rural Bangladesh.

 

Our research found that the RSP has opened up new pathways of empowerment for some marginalised women in a context of considerable socioeconomic and cultural constraints, yet whether such schemes will have traction as a model for economic empowerment over the long term remains an open question

Selling consumer products to the Bottom of the Pyramid (BoP) | CARE / unilever / Danone / Grameenphone / Bic | Innovation for all | Scoop.it

Working with companies including Unilever, Danone, Grameenphone, Bic and local producers, CARE International has used its deep insight and experience of working within communities in rural Bangladesh to establish a network of women to sell and distribute a changing basket of mixed goods, which includes consumer products, medicines, food, apparel and agricultural items.

A Responsibility and a Market: Why Danone May Represent the Future of BoP Business - Business Fights Poverty

A Responsibility and a Market: Why Danone May Represent the Future of BoP Business - Business Fights Poverty | Innovation for all | Scoop.it
The “future of BOP business” is a sweeping, flashy claim. Yet Danone’s strategy appears to be different for all the right, non-flashy reasons.

 

A strict focus on unit economics, clear understanding of the business’ role in social impact, and most of all, direct links between base of the pyramid (BOP) market growth and core business goals set their approach apart.

The BoP Approach: Sinner or Savior? - Business Fights Poverty

The BoP Approach: Sinner or Savior? - Business Fights Poverty | Innovation for all | Scoop.it
Today several of the world’s largest corporations – including Hewlett Packard, SK Johnson and Unilever – are engaging with the so-called ‘bottom of the pyramid’, becoming key players in global development by selling products to improve health, nutrition and overall well-being in the rural markets of developing countries.

 

Meanwhile development donors like DfID champion large scale social entrepreneurship as a mechanism for delivering social development outcomes, from gender empowerment, to disease eradication and access to energy.

 

However, the BoP model is not without its critics.

Opponents have pointed to the paradox of promoting development by increasing mass consumption, highlighting the effects of selling single serve plastic sachets of soap and shampoo in a context of global climate change.

 

Others claim that such initiatives are nothing more than a cynical marketing ploy on behalf of multinational corporations to ‘have their cake and eat it’ by selling products that arguably poor communities do not need but in a model that suggests a genuine concern for wellbeing and economic empowerment.

CSR Asia - BoP boom in Japan Part I

CSR Asia - BoP boom in Japan Part I | Innovation for all | Scoop.it

The year 2009 was referred to as “The first year of BoP in Japan”. Not only did the Japanese translation of the late Prof. Prahalad’s “The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid” received much attention, BoP market analyzation that focused on emerging markets in Asia and African countries gained wide recognition too.

 

Documentaries on the subject were broadcasted not only on commercial TV stations but also on NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation), giving it an official media appeal. Subsequently, the joint ventures between UNIQLO and Yukiguni Maitake Company with Grameen in Bangladesh in 2011 accelerated the BoP boom.
