Unlocking scale: tapping existing platforms for reaching the Base of the Pyramid
11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Many businesses recognize that low-income earners at the base of the pyramid constitute a vast untapped market for their products and services, but they don´t know where or how to begin to reach them. But there are proven models for how to do this. Michael Fairbanks, author, investor and advisor to President Kagame of Rwanda, Marco Gorini of Grupo Tenda in Brazil, Aquiles Mercado of Promigas, S.A. in Colombia and Luis Velasco of Mi Tienda of Mexico either invented those models or made them successful.
