SMDP Webinar: The Business Solution To Poverty

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm


A webinar with Mal Warwick

The 2.7 billion people who live on $2 a day or less today outnumber the total population of the planet in 1950, when the fight against global poverty began. Recognizing the failure of traditional methods to end poverty, Mal will detail how a radical new, market-driven approach can enable hundreds of millions of poor people to rise out of poverty within our lifetimes. Far more than theory, this approach is grounded in three decades of successful work in the Global South, and businesses incorporating it are now underway in India, where nearly one-third of the world’s poor can be found.

Our September SMDP Webinar guest Mal Warwick will discuss the Business Solution to Poverty for the first half of the broadcast. Then participants will have a chance to ask Mal questions about this groundbreaking approach and specific questions about their social enterprise work.
