Where do I find case studies of Base of the Pyramid business models?
Frederik Pétursson MadsenCo-founder AfricaPace
The Growing Inclusive Markets (GIM) by UNDP has recently released 60 new case studies of business models, which include the poor on the demand side as clients and customers, and on the supply side as employees, producers, and business owners along the value chain.

The case studies are from Africa, Americas, Asia and Europe. They are well documented and researched providing insights and inspiration of the various ways to develop business models including the poor.

The studies are organised by several well-defined variables and are available in a searchable database.
