Rising Pyramid is about the gradual improvement of life for the world’s poorest, living at the Bottom of the Pyramid (BoP). Despite setbacks, social entrepreneurs who set goals on hitting the triple bottom line have been challenging global poverty head on and have succeeded in many cases. We believe that both the successes and challenges faced by these entrepreneurs are leading to the rise of those at the bottom of the pyramid.
The title, “Rising Pyramid”, is meant to reflect an optimistic perspective of the promising progress made by social entrepreneurs and to elevate interest in the bottom of the pyramid. This blog is meant to celebrate social entrepreneurs and to explore the issues they face as they attempt to solve the world’s largest problem: poverty.
We encourage discussion, comments and feedback on the topics and ideas we highlight and investigate here on Rising Pyramid.
