In October 2010, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) organised an inclusive business event, where IFC recognized twelve clients for their leadership in developing inclusive business models.
The event highlighted the successful approaches IFC clients have taken to overcome the challenges faced while starting and scaling their inclusive business models.
1) Building distribution networks that reach the BOP
2) Value chain financing for inclusive business models
3) Changing mindsets to unlock demand
4) New ways of working with development donors
IFC published a report
(pdf, 78 pp.) of the 2 day event that summarises the 14 global case studies presented such as Coca Cola Sabco and Dialog Telecom, as well as many of the insights shared during the conference. More information about the event including video clips are available here
