Inclusive Business in Myanmar

Online bootcamp for businesses, NGOs, MFIs and public institutions that would like to learn more about and progress Inclusive Business in their organization.

The DaNa Facility in collaboration with the BoP Innovation Center is happy to present this Inclusive Business in Myanmar online bootcamp. In response to COVID-19 we are opening up this course free of charge until 30 June 2020.

As the global COVID-19 crisis is also starting to impact us locally, the relevance of Inclusive Business is now more apparent than ever in Myanmar. Big parts of the Myanmar population work in the informal sector or have daily wage jobs. Lockdown or restricted travel often means no income for already vulnerable BoP families, leading to lack of basic needs such as food and healthcare. Companies are impacted heavily by downturn in activity and movement of people and goods, necessitating business models to pivot fast.

Inclusive Businesses can have meaningful responses to the COVID-19 challenges in the short-term, while building businesses that are more robust and resilient against similar shocks in future. This bootcamp has three modules in which you learn about the promise of Inclusive Business in Myanmar, how to develop an Inclusive Business model and the power of partnerships for Inclusive Business - with local Myanmar examples and regional and global best practice cases throughout to inspire you.

This bootcamp will start on Monday 27 April. The estimated time to complete each module is 2-4 hours.

Enjoy this bootcamp and let us know if you have any questions!
