MONTHLY NEWS

This month, in partnership with BCtA, we explore the phenomenon of ‘breakthrough SMEs’ at the BoP – who are they, what sets them apart from other businesses, how are they overcoming the many challenges at the BoP and what factors are driving their success?

ENTREPRENEURS SPEAK

How do you overcome the challenges of working at the BoP? What makes a sustainable business model? How important are partnerships? 

Just some of the questions answered by the social entrepreneurs we speak to in our INTERVIEW SERIES.
