[Outcomes] [Infopreneurs]



According to our model, a whole ‘community of practitioners’ (Infopreneurs®) and associated contractual relationships should be deployed to support the development objectives of (rural) communities. This ‘community’ also produces valuable data and knowledge concerning service delivery as well as buying and usage patterns at “the bottom of the pyramid” and therefore becomes a participant in the knowledge industry. Follow this link to obtain more detail on the current Infopreneur® Deployments.

The following diagram provides an overview of our ‘journey’ up the value addition ladder as we progress from ‘tool builders’ to ‘social enterprise’ developers.  Several of our publications shed more light on this ‘journey’ and they should be consulted for a detail understanding of the path we have traveled and the destination reached.
