AVPN’s Friday sessions are casual get-togethers once a month for our community and friends, whereby we choose a topic of interest, and have a key speaker start the conversation off. For the month of July we will be talking about how to provide better goods and services to the Base of the Pyramid (BoP).
BoP Hub is a non-profit venture that aims to provide a global platform to forge strategic partnerships between the private sector, social enterprises, subject matter experts and the BoP community to give individuals at the base of the pyramid a chance to participate in the marketplace activities as consumers and entrepreneurs.
Come and join us and find out more about the BOP Hub platform and the impact that it can create.
