MONTHLY NEWS

This month we profile and celebrate unconventional business, as does the Sankalp Unconventional Summit 2014 taking place on April 9-11 in Mumbai.

We have interviews with executives from 5 of the Sankalp Finalists, explaining their unusual models. We highlight unconventional businesses in the Hub portfolios and hear from two businesses pushing boundaries in the BoP sanitary pad market.

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.
