Dear Katrin,


Thanks for sharing this. You mentioned that to scale access and
affordability are key. The 4As of Prahalad include Acceptability and
Awareness as other dimensions (they would fall under "utility and user
needs" that you mentioned). I think this is also key to our field. What
are the strategies to make this happen (e.g., co-creation with the
end-users, partnership)? Furthermore, to expand on the section Ecosystem
of partners or value chain and new business models is what we should be
after as well. 


For instance, the report that you site "Frandano, A. K. M. K. P. (2009,
March). Emerging markets, emerging models. Monitor Group." is also a
good starting point. They present 7 business models that we could try to
apply to the field of M4D/ICT4D but overall the report is not dedicated
to ICT and focus mostly on India so we could definitely expand it.

We just published a White Paper on Scaling m-Services for Development
that touches upon some of the issues related to business models.  Might
contribute to this discussion:

Dear All,

I have published a paper on business models on mHealth initiatives in
developing countries. Based on almost 5 years study of 5 mhealth
projects from India and Africa. This might be useful in this debate.

Dear All,


	i would like to react of Nicolas's mail about business models:


	I didn't have a chance to read the resources he pointed, but i'm

	realizing that there are very few documented examples of working

	business models. I just wrote a post about that at

and i

	think it would be useful to collect people's experience, or

	they have to come with a better view of what has been tested,
how it

	works, and so on. So, first, please let me know if this is

	this group should cope with. Then please share your own
experience and

	references if you have any.
