Session 10

Entrepreneurship in Base-of-the-Pyramid Markets

Track K

Date: Sunday, October 4, 2015


Time: 08:00 – 09:15

Interest Group Panel

Room: Governor's Square 16

Session Chair:

  • Geoffrey Kistruck, York University


The intersection of entrepreneurship and base-of-the-pyramid markets has spawned research on a number of interesting phenomena including social entrepreneurship, development entrepreneurship, and the informal economy. Scholars focused on such phenomena often strive to conduct research that not only significantly contributes to academic scholarship, but also fulfills their personal desire to directly and meaningfully impact those who reside within impoverished settings. But how can we, as scholars, identify the types of research questions related to such phenomena that are both practically relevant and theoretical interesting? To inform this discussion, we have assembled a panel of leading scholars who have successfully navigated such duality. At the beginning of the session, each panelist will offer their own insights into the most significant gaps in need of redress by both academics and practitioners within this domain. A broader discussion will then take place to identify different techniques and approaches that can be used to generate pertinent research questions with respect to entrepreneurship in base-of-the-pyramid markets.
