The Soap Lady: Finding Disruptive Consumers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Today’s disruptive consumer isn’t a tech-savvy millennial or a millionaire taking the first space tour. It’s a farmer in rural India, gaining access to consumer products for the first time. A woman in Africa whose repackaging of soap changed the way her neighbors get clean. With developed markets reaching saturation, companies are focused on engaging the 4 billion people at the base of the economic pyramid. But it’s not as simple as exporting watered-down versions of developed-market innovations. It takes a special type of creativity to generate solutions aligned with the dynamic challenges of the emerging world.

Learn best practices for fostering innovation in emerging markets, for emerging markets through the lens of an executive who’s done it. Meet “the soap lady”– whose simple idea helped change the way billion-dollar companies package their products – and learn how understanding the human experience can revolutionize the way technologists and innovators solve problems worldwide.
