Tweet Jam: Designing for the Base of the Pyramid

| Monday June 9th, 2014 | 0 Comments


Since we can’t get enough of Twitter lately, it’s time for another Tweet Jam. A Tweet Jam is a one hour conversation with a panel of experts to which everyone is invited.

This time we’ll be teaming up with Business Fights Poverty to lead the conversation about key topics facing the alleviation of poverty via design.  Some of the key questions we’ll explore are: What are some of big successes and failures in designing for the BoP? What can we learn from these experiences? What insights are there in how to go about the process of design? What are the factors behind a successful business model? How can different players work together – large companies, social entrepreneurs, government and civil society? Do designers take gender sufficiently into account when designing for the BoP? What are the next big opportunities?

From 4.30 to 5.30 UK time / 11.30 to 12.30 ET on Tuesday 10 June,  we’ll be online with Business Fights Poverty (@FightPoverty) as part of their 2014 Design Expo.
