New report outline promising sectors in low-income market segments
Fintech, edtech, consumer internet and mobile are the sectors in emerging markets that are most promising, according to a new report from Omidyar Network. They are ripe for further innovation as well as investments. A decade ago it was impossible to penerate low-income market segments by start-ups with little assets. Since technology has developed in favour of low-cost models, this is now possible and affordable also to entrepreneurs in developing and emerging economies. As a result, these new frontier markets also become more attractive to investors.
Omidyar Network (founded by the EBay co-founder Pierre Omidyar) is a major funder of impact investments in emerging economies. The executive summary of their report can be downloaded here.
