World Economic Situation And Prospects: September 12222 Briefing, No. 130
Inclusive business - including large MNCs, social enterprises to impact investors - recognize that the private sector will increasingly play a lead role in solving such problems and closing the gaps. This suggests a macro level business case supporting the mantra of "doing good while doing well. The course will help students with a framework for archetypal inclusive innovation models and where to apply them, identify how to specifically construct them and dig into specific models in practical case examples and draw broader conclusions.
Graduates of this class will leave with a set of inclusive innovation models that they can apply to their own future organizations - an existing large business, a social enterprise, a start-up they have founded, a client they are advising as a consultant, board member or an investor. They will leave with conceptual frameworks, practical tools and skills and case examples for pattern recognition and practicing analytical problem-solving to apply elsewhere. This course examines how commercial, government, and non-profit stakeholders engage market forces in a range of crucial services to improve the lives of low-income customers.

Skills acquired in the course include business design and analysis, client management, and presentation skills.

The informal economy brims with activity and innovation, yet it is precisely its informality, that leaves it unshielded by the state.

We end by glimpsing into the dark side of the informal economy - the shadowy areas of smuggling and informal finance.

At times it is the reluctant recipient of well-meaning, but doomed programs and interventions. It is not subsidized initiatives alone that flounder in the informal economy. So too do water purification companies, mobile money operators, and solar lamp providers. They wonder why huge swaths of the informal market fail to adopt their innovations.

This course focuses on researching individuals and groups living and working in the informal economy and on designing products and services for them.
