The emerging markets 'innovation du jour' post comes from our friends at the World Resources Institute. To be frank, the post in question on their nextbillion.net blog is a year old. However, it is still attracting requests for franchise information and entrepreneurs from as diverse a range of places as Mozambique, India, and California.
The post may be dated but it says a lot about the lead taken by some emerging markets as sources of innovation and incubators of environmentally-friendly enterprises. Just as importantly for our purposes, it says even more about the global market for innovation and clean technologies. It's alive and well and taking full advantage of the consumer-led blogosphere's promise.
