Purposeful Business at the Base-of-the-Pyramid: A CoBS Research Pod

Base-of-the-Pyramid DNA takes a look at how large companies can create purposeful win-wins with local stakeholders and tough environments.

Ever heard of the “poverty penalty”? For a business, performing well in tough-to-reach markets at the Base-of-the-Pyramid implies a distinct competitive advantage, while for the population itself, it implies a reduction in vulnerability, improvement in well-being, and access to basic products. Base-of-the-Pyramid DNA takes a look at how large companies can create purposeful win-wins with local stakeholders and tough environments. By Profs Edgard Barki and Juracy Parente of FGV-EAESP.
