'Business must take the lead in reinventing capitalism and making it more inclusive. This book provides business leaders with a hard-nosed assessment of the opportunities and challenges of doing so.'

-Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director, McKinsey

'While l have had the privilege of working with Valeria and Olivier for over ten years, on concrete projects aimed at inventing new socially impacting business models, and hybrid value chain solutions, this book has broadened my understanding of the myriad of entrepreneurs who are working to change our planet.'

-Emmanuel Faber, CEO, Danone

'This book provides business executives with a wealth of concrete cases and deep insights into what it takes to build scalable inclusive business models.'

-Jean-Laurent Ingles, Global Senior Vice President, Household Care, Unilever

'The huge wall that has separated the business and social halves of the world's operations for several centuries is an especially rich opportunity and is the chief focus of this book. I doubt that there is anyone who can match Valeria and Olivier for depth of experience, insight, or clarity here.'

-Bill Drayton, CEO, Ashoka

'The emerging field of inclusive or BOP business has suffered from 'pilotitis' the proliferation of small pilot business experiments with little prospect for expansion. Kayser and Budinich's book provides both the diagnosis and the treatment regime for taking BoP business to the next level. A long overdue resource for anyone interested in how to accelerate entrepreneurship for a more inclusive and sustainable world.'

-Stuart L. Hart, Professor of Sustainable Business, University of Vermont Business School; co-author of The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid
