  • What is an Inclusive Business Partnership?
    There are many definitions, but ...
    ... it is one view of business models which include the poor, and can be catalysed or improved to produce pro-poor outcomes
    NGOs, business, institutions and government can form partnerships to deliver these models
    Target – often Base of Pyramid consumers and producers
    For broader context see www.m4phub.org, Finmark, www.businessinnovationfacility.org
    Porter – Creating Shared Value - commercial and social health are mutually beneficial
  • Examples
    Usual suspect: M-Pesa

    Results
    Successful negotiated outcome (brokered by Challenges Worldwide) – successful fusion of NGO, business, farming association and ethical trading company – storage, buying, processing, selling Malawi peanuts
    NGO know-how with the poor matched with business DNA
    Benefits – people want secure income or more income? Benefits to women (members, farmers?) How long before people benefit?
    Questions
    It is scalable, but is it as replicable to other similar industries as we thought? Or do we need a cultural shift in outlook?
    Should an NGO or charity engage with this type of project?
    Who is lying awake at night worrying about this project? Entrepreneurship is desirable
    What is the counterfactual? Baseline only partially adequate
    Partnership – do you need to share values to share value? Adversarial vs collaborative relationships
