Poverty Initiative: Workshops for Research Development

Poverty Initiative logoThe Executive Committee of the SMS approved a special initiative brought forward by SMS members to help address the issue of poverty in the world. One way to help address this problem is to develop greater knowledge about the business environment in settings of poverty so that businesses can both serve this domain better and that more local entrepreneurship can occur.
