MONTHLY NEWS

How a business engages and listens to its customers often determines how successful it is going to be. For inclusive businesses, the importance of that interaction goes up tenfold. 

This month we have a host of examples of how businesses are listening to consumers, adapting their products and services, and learning about those they reach. 

EXPLORING IB

The Innovations Against Poverty 2013 Portfolio Review gives a status report on the inclusive businesses supported by IAP. It assesses the commercial viability of the projects and explores the development effects.
