In just 25 years, Singapore has transformed from a new, developing economy to an international hub for finance and innovation. So it’s fitting that this August 28-30 the country will host the inaugural BoP World Convention & Expo, convening leaders and social entrepreneurs from every sector to advance business solutions to end global poverty. The Base of the Pyramid (BoP) refers to the four billion people living in emerging economies. Collectively, they represent an untapped market of USD $5 trillion and a blue ocean opportunity for businesses to grow by reaching new markets and improving lives. Themed A Brave New Marketplace: Unleashing Opportunities at the Base of the Pyramid, the inaugural BoP World Convention & Expo is a unique forum that encourages key stakeholders from multiple sectors and industries to share knowledge, address challenges, and explore partnerships to foster sustainable and affordable solutions that could impact millions of lives. In conjunction, an expo will be held to offer corporate participants a platform to provide holistic solutions, products, and services for the consumers and entrepreneurs at the base of the pyramid.
“The BoP World Convention & Expo is the first meeting place to industrialise the poverty factor,” said BoP Hub’s founder and renowned social innovator Jack Sim. “We’re looking across sectors to transform the base of the pyramid into a massive, efficient, vibrant market place capable of creating jobs, bolstering entrepreneurs, improving quality of life, and increasing financing and purchasing power.”
