Conversation with Paul Polak “The Business Solution to Poverty”
I have done a lot of nonprofit work these past few years. While I feel I like to think I have made a positive impact, have stumbled upon a new approach that views the billions of those earning less than $2.00 a day by thinking of them as customers. This is pretty radical so naturally, I am fascinated. :) I met Paul Polak, coauthor of “The Business Solution to Poverty” and was invited to attend his first Google Hangout group to discuss various business models and how they could be adapted to serve this sector of humanity. Here is an excerpt from the conversation as it relates to my vision for duckweed.
