The local-for-local open innovation platform Nestlé Hatcher
Nova SBE innovating in the teaching of impact and sustainability!
From climate change, to poverty or gender inequality, enterprises and businesses are now asked to walk the talk- but what can be done? What is being done? The Grad students of Prof. Filipe Alfaiate course “Leading Impact Enterprises in International Development”, designed and developed podcasts as their final assignment where they applied the course’s content - and the best podcasts are at the centre of this Sustainability and Impact Global Series!
This first season has eight exciting episodes exploring how some enterprises in Africa are working towards impact and sustainability. We will look into the tools they use, the challenges they face, how they adapt their pricing, marketing, distribution to commercially reach a growing market of more than 2,5 billion people - with a positive impact!
Our first series dedicated to impact in Africa end with this lively and exciting conversation between Professor Filipe Alfaiate and Mr. João Barreto, the Head of Innovation and PMO at Nestle, based in South Africa.
They discussed impact journeys, the BOP market in Africa, opportunities and challenges and in particular, a very interesting local-for-local open innovation platform for all in Africa called Nestlé Hatcher that João designed and launched.
