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:
• 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: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.
