Write About Your Business Challenge – Win $4,000

By Wayan Vota on September 7, 2009

Do you have a business challenge while working in low-income communities, that has created a new business model or initiative?

Regardless of its success or failure, the Center for Sustainable Global Enterprise’s Bottom of the Pyramid Narrative Competition could reward your telling of the experience with up to $4,000.

Best of all, this is a short-essay competition – entries are 1,000 words or less and can be from either non-profit or for-profit enterprises, as long as the initiative highlighted illustrates a unique approach to poverty alleviation through an innovative product, service, technology, or business model.

One major requirement is the focus on scalablity of Triple Bottom Line business strategies. Business models must improve the environmental, societal, and economic quality of life for the community in addition to having the potential and an aspiration for scale and replication.

If you have a BoP business activity that qualifies, be sure to enter soon. The entry deadline is October 11, 2009.
