Dear all,

The call for paper for the international conference “Impact of Base-of-the-Pyramid Ventures” has been extended till May 29th. 

Please consider submitting an abstract related to the 2 topics of the conference:
1. Impact assessment
* In what way are the characteristics of impact assessment of BoP ventures different from other impact assessment
of economic development processes?
* How can methodologies of impact assessment frameworks and tools contribute to comprehensive understanding
of impacts and also to stimulate ``improving'' interventions.
* In what way does the Triple Bottom Line concept contribute to impact assessment of BoP ventures?
* Provide a more systematic and informed judgment about the overall design of impact assessments in relation to
their costs, specific objectives and contexts.
* Increase our understanding of the ways in which the results of impact assessment studies influence policymakers
and managers
2. Optimization of value creation
* In what way are the challenges for value creation similar or different for BoP ventures in comparison to
conventional business development strategies?
* What are the different strategies to optimize value creation for BoP ventures?
* What are the tradeoffs that BoP ventures face when optimizing value creation?
* Case studies of successful (and unsuccessful) optimization of value creation of BoP ventures

Best,
Nicolas
