Base of the Pyramid Resources for Social Entrepreneurs

I was in a discussion of base of the pyramid solutions which pointed to these base of the pyramid resources. I thought it was both useful and enlightening and would add it here as my third (?) post on social entrepreneur resources. (this post is in Beta) Feel free to add other resources in the comments section:

Bottom of the Pyramid Resources

Next Billion (About Next Billion = Very Helpful + Informative)

Mobile Active

Base of the Pyramid Protocol

The Next 4 Billion: Market Size and Business Strategy for the Base of the Pyramid from the World Resources Institute

Base of the Pyramid Learning Lab Network

Creating Value for All: Growing Inclusive Markets

Base of the Pyramid Articles Resources at the University of Michigan Business School

Base of the Pyramid Design (aka Design for the Other 90 Percent)

Design for the Base of the Pyramid

Sustainable Design at the Base of the Pyramid

Base of the Pyramid Books

Alternative Bottom of the Pyramid Resources to Consider

Best Base of the Pyramid resources on delicious.

• Academic and Research Resources including Case Studies and Curriculum examples at University Network. [FYI: you have to sign up to access the resources, it only takes about 2 minutes]

Social Entrepreneurship Wiki-From Social Edge. Very condensed and information rich

Updated: SME Resource Guide for New Ventures (part of World Resources Institute) Provides business plan resources too–I believe.

Updated: This resource kills it. Its short videos from experts in the bottom of the pyramid and social enterprise field. Here is Cornell’s topical list of poverty expert videos. (With the 2nd link, I believe they may be mixed in with other Economics content)

Updated: Two page social enterprise resource list. Decent intro.

Updated: Global Maps of Social Issues and Crisis

Updated: Scaling Social Impact by the Skoll Foundation with the help of 20 social entrepreneurial organizations is critical for growing your organization to help large numbers of the billions in poverty at the bottom of the pyramid.

Updated: The social enterprise resources at Duke’s Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship look very helpful. The Duke resources also include 30 case studies which can potentially be instructive in the BOP context.
