    The “bottom of the pyramid” (BoP) - the four billion people who live on less than $2 per day - has been discovered by development and business alike, as a target market, a potential revenue stream, and a focus for development strategies. This workshop brings together leading researchers from academia, industry and development to better understand the BoP in practice, to assess some of the claims and reflect on the concept itself as it has circulated and transformed, with a special focus on information and communication technologies.
