E-launch of Development Outreach: The Power of Innovation
Join Aleem Walji, the Practice Manager of WBI’s Innovation Team and one of the lead authors for a webinar.
Webinar on Thursday, July 22, 2010 at 3pm EST (see below for instructions).
In a post-crisis world, innovation may be the single most important driver of economic growth and competitiveness. The time is right to move development forward through creative uses of technology. We now have the capacity to scale up innovative approaches to meet the needs of people at the “bottom of the pyramid” when traditional markets fail to do the job.
Our authors share their thoughts on how to mobilize innovative solutions to reduce poverty - smarter, better, faster, and differently. Global experts discuss policy, process, new applications, and projects in social enterprise and innovation.
