NextBillion is an open forum for the development through enterprise sector. Based at the William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan, the site is a community of business leaders, social entrepreneurs, NGO managers, policy makers, academics and others exploring the connection between development and for-profit business.
We publish guest-written content from entrepreneurs, researchers and others working on the ground in emerging markets, along with regular interviews with the thought-leaders who are shaping the sector. Most of our coverage focuses on low- and middle-income countries, though we also cover businesses and initiatives serving low-income communities in more developed markets. Our goal is to provide a platform for discussion of business ideas and innovations that address poverty-related challenges and reshape entire economies.
NextBillion also offers an editor-curated news feed, a calendar of important events, and a jobs board with continuously updated employment opportunities across the development through enterprise sector.
