New podcast episode: The power of market creating innovations

We’ve published a new podcast episode exploring the role of market creating innovation in supporting developing economies to evolve from poverty to prosperity.

Prosperity and sustainable, inclusive growth are the ultimate goals for developing economies. However, despite the global community spending billions each year on economic development programmes, poverty and a lack of opportunity within these countries persists.

But what if there is a way in which we can support these economies to evolve from poverty to prosperity in less than two decades? Innovation expert Efosa Ojomo believes focused and impact driven market innovations could do just that.

Join us for this conversation with Efosa, co-author of The Prosperity Paradox and Senior Fellow at the Christensen Institute on Disruptive Innovation. Efosa is joined on the panel by Nikunj Jinsi, a hugely experienced venture capital investor in developing countries.

The discussion is chaired by CDC’s General Counsel and Head of External Relations, Colin Buckley. This podcast episode is taken from a recent CDC Insight event.
