BoP Hub World Convention is the flagship event of BoP Hub. It is set to make its first appearance in 2014, and thereafter will be an annual event hosted in Singapore.
The Convention’s mission is to become the world’s leading conference on Bottom of the Pyramid, providing a platform to bring together leaders in academia, businesses, governments and civil society to share and create innovative large scale market-driven BoP business models and solutions. Its objective is to:
Engage: Educate global leaders about the business and social potential of BoP;
Connect: Network investors with entrepreneurs and businesses in order to stimulate new project creation;
Innovate: Stimulate large scale cross innovation and action;
Accelerate the sharing of knowledge, ideas and results and take BoP to mainstream economy
The Convention, along with the plenary and seminar sessions will house a tradeshow that will offer a platform for designers, architects, manufacturers, technologists, domain experts, social entrepreneurs, and businesses to demonstrate and collaborate to leverage social innovations and resources.
As Singapore is committed to support social enterprises by building a pro-social enterprise environment and creating a socially responsible corporate culture, the BoP Hub World Convention’s aim is to reinforce these efforts by connecting the developing world and the developed nations in sharing of experiences and innovations.
