PALS Lecture: Bottom of the Pyramid Business Models (Myanmar Case)June 12, 4:15pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, UH BusAd D-207
Bottom-of-the-pyramid (BOP) refers to social and economic sustainable development addressing the largest and poorest populations in the world. The term cuts across national borders and identifies a specific economic demographic: the four billion people who live on less than US $2.50 per day. The BOP model aims to create an inclusive market where multiple services and products that are otherwise nonexistent are provided by the private sector, benefiting the people who are at the bottom of the pyramid as well as businesses, which seek to create or enlarge a customer base. This lecture provides insights from Myanmar as a case study and discusses the value of the BOP approach.
