From Small (and Medium) Acorns

Posted on February 25, 2009 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

Approximately 99% of businesses in developed countries are small or medium sized.

I was astounded when I first learnt this fact, and now I think about it, it set me on my current path with Coethica. At that moment I was working closely with Business in the Community during my time at Everton Football Club and verged on being obsessed with this newly discovered CSR thing. After a little midnight researching I was further amazed at the lack of support and apparent motivation to… Continue

you are right... about the small businesses in developing countries. In fact small business is the best way of the distribution of wealth too in these countries which have corrupt ridden governance. We are trying to get Tribal group start their own small enterprises.. in eastern part of India...the above pictire is from one of the project where we are helping them in tourism..

Hi David,

thanks for getting back to me and sorry for the slight delay in responding. I hope the presentation in Turkey is going well and hope that we will get a chance to exchange some ideas. I will drop you an email once I get a moment to crystalise some concepts in my mind on potential collaboration.

Take care, Daphne

Great idea to form a twitter group. Thank you!
I also apologize, after joining, I wanted to post my twitter username as a comment in this group and only after hitting the send button realized that this might have gone directly to all members... Sorry again, I did not mean to ruffle any feathers.

HI...Thanks, fro adding me. In fact I had posted pon your page long back...but could not follow up. My association with tribal groups on natural tourost spots have increased and now I am more confident about small is beautiful.
If you ever visit India, I can take you to such groups, who are also trying to grow plants to feed silk worms and make silk. In fact the first cirtified organic silk has already been produced here and lovely cloths are being made my these gents and ladies.
If some one is interested in opening small outlets any where in the world, these people have excellent items of handicrafts ( wooden, terracota, leather, grass woven table mats, tea coasters,brass items, etc)and silk cloths like scraves, saris, shirts, and many such. The cottton haandloom items are also being made. Can you believe it? More than 70000 people are engaged in such activities, working from their home and working hours as per their convenienec, and all this has been made posible because of one good man in the Govt here, who is honest dedicated to the cause and pro-poor.
The Director Handicraft of Jharkhand State. I am also taking his help to make some of my groups self relient.
Some one from developed country like UK has to see it to believe

Hi David

Sorry for the late reply, yes we are 'near'. I had a look at your company website, looks very interesting and would like to know more.

Thanks for the welcome David! I think we should start a group about the best fair trade organic coffee. Or maybe budget-minded green living. Went to Asheville recently and WOWZA the prices were high. I was grateful to be back in Denver where we can get the big bag of Cafe Altura for under $8. What is the access for organic coffee like across pond?
