The concept of The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid originally appeared as an article by C. K. Prahalad and Stuart L. Hart in the business journal Strategy+Business. https://www.strategy-business.com/article/11518?gko=9a4ba The article was followed by a book with the same title that discusses new business models targeted at providing goods and services to the poorest people in the world. It makes a case for the fastest growing new markets and entrepreneurial opportunities being found among the billions of poor people 'at the bottom of the [financial] pyramid'. According to Bill Gates, it "offers an intriguing blueprint for how to fight poverty with profitability." The world's most exciting, fastest-growing new market is where you least expect it: at the bottom of the pyramid. Collectively, the world's billions of poor people have immense untapped buying power. They represent an enormous opportunity for companies who learn how to serve them. Not only can it be done, it is being done--very profitably. What's more, companies aren't just making money: by serving these markets, they're helping millions of the world's poorest people escape poverty. Drawing on Prahalad's breakthrough insights in The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid, great companies worldwide have sought to identify, build, and profit from new markets amongst the world's several billion poorest people, while at the same time helping to alleviate poverty. Five years after its first publication, this book's ideas are no longer "theory": they are proven, profitable reality. In the 5th Anniversary Edition, Prahalad thoroughly updates his book to reveal all that's been learned about competing and profiting "at the bottom of the pyramid." Prahalad outlines the latest strategies and tactics that companies are utilizing to succeed in the developing world. He interviews several innovative CEOs to discuss what they've learned from their own initiatives, including the Unilever business leader who's built a billion-dollar business in India. C.K.

Prahalad also offers an up-to-date assessment of the key questions his ideas raised: ➽ Is there truly a market? Is there scale? ➽ Is there profit? Is there innovation? ➽ Is this a global opportunity? Five years ago, executives could be hopeful that the answers to these questions would be positive. Now, as Prahalad demonstrates, they can be certain of it. The book consists of a number of case studies, one to a chapter, about businesses that have thrived with such models. These include the businesses Casas Bahia, Patrimonio Hoy, Bank of Madura, Aravind Eye Hospital, Jaipur rugs and Project Shakti and how they were founded. The world's most exciting, fastest-growing new market? It's where you least expect it: at the bottom of the pyramid.

You can learn how to serve them and help millions of the world's poorest people escape poverty. It is being done―profitably.

In the book and accompanying CD videos, Prahalad presents ideas that can change the world ● Why what you know about BOP markets is wrong？ A world of surprises―from spending patterns to distribution and marketing ● Unlocking the "poverty penalty" ● How to serve the wirld's poorest people and make a profit. ● New strategies and tactics for building winning businesses in today emerging markets. ● The most enduring contributions your company can make Delivering dignity, empowerment, and choice―not just products ● New bottom of pyramid trends in technology, healthcare, consumer goods, finance and beyond. ● Insights from top CEOs succeeding in emerging markets. ● Corporations and BOP entrepreneurs Profiting together from an inclusive new capitalism Refreshing approach to foreign development. Prahalad takes the viewpoint that developed, free-market countries got where they are through private-sector innovation. Sidestepping the vicious political debates around foreign aid, he instead lays brick after brick of solid case studies showing where multi-national corporations were able to transform developing economies by simply studying them and creating products suited to the people there. He shows how this process also transforms a company, teaching them to be leaner, more efficient, and to rethink every aspect of what they do. The book builds a solid foundation of evidence that for-profit corporations can alleviate poverty, empower women, provide affordable healthcare, and improve government transparency. The second half of the book is composed of in-depth case reports that provide additional detail on the examples described in the book. Most of them are written by Prahalad's students, and for some reason don't appear to have been proofread extensively. I was slightly disappointed by that oversight, but the material itself is fascinating. Take a break from the blackboard-economy theories of the government bureaucrats and read about some on-the-ground, tangible ideas that are changing the world. It's refreshing. "C. K.
