Targeting the base of the pyramid at scale: Easier said than done!

posted in by admin

In an article recently published in Thinkers, an Indian quarterly magazine, Filippo Veglio, Director of the WBCSD’s Social Impact Cluster, examines the scalability of inclusive business ventures targeting the base of the pyramid by expanding access to goods, services, and livelihoods in commercially viable ways (Geneva, August 7, 2015).
He shares the WBCSD’s perspectives on the concept of scale, and highlights the results of the research conducted by the Council around the key internal barriers faced by multinational companies when it comes to scaling up these ventures.
The work, based on in-depth conversations with leading member companies and experts in this field, does not limit itself to highlighting problems. Rather, it focused on sharing a set of proven solutions (a dozen in total) that these front-runners have adopted. While some of the examples featured are success stories, the majority are ongoing efforts of sets of ideas and practical strategies.
