Innovest contributes to Refugee Inclusive Business report
October 19, 2018
Innovest Advisory was a key contributor to a new publication by Business Fights Poverty on the role of refugee inclusive business in market-based solutions to the refugee crisis.
Resilience through Refugee-Inclusive Business is a series of briefs which provides practical insights into refugee-inclusive business models and recommendations on how to bring them to scale. The full series is intended to mobilise more business action and strengthen the foundation for partnerships to improve refugees’ wellbeing, education, and economic inclusion so refugees can thrive, not just survive. The hope is that this series will offer tangible, practical ways to realize a shared responsibility approach that views business as more than a source of funding but rather as a key partner in the development of sustainable solutions.
It is a product of the Business Fights Poverty Business and Refugees Challenge supported by Pearson and in partnership with Mercy Corps, UNHCR, Thomson Reuters Foundation, Business Call to Action, and Innovest Advisory.
The publication was also featured in an article on Building Business Models for Refugee Resilience by the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR).
