On 2 December 2014, the Business Call to Action (BCtA), in partnership with the Business Fights Poverty (BFP), hosted a webinar discussion addressing the question, How Do You Create a Transformative Business Model?
During the webinar we discussed challenges and opportunities that companies face in developing, sustaining and scaling successful inclusive business models that achieve commercial success and development outcomes by doing business with the ‘base of the economic pyramid’.
