First MENA BoP Global Network Summit
Date: Oct 1
Location: AUC New Cairo Campus
Description: The conference aims to bring frugal innovations that are community-based (lead and owned by the community) for three thematic areas of focus: grassroots innovations, schooling for the BoP, and affordable housing. The conference will take three days. The first two days is open for wider audience and follows a traditional conference format, albeit more focused in scope and purpose (frugal+community-based for grassroots innovation, education and housing). The third day follows a round-table format and is by invitation only, and aims at bringing small community-based groups with invited best-practices with the aim of discussing implementation details.
