Reverse Innovation & Social Entrepreneurs

Blackman Auditorium, Reverse Innovation Lecture (c) Northeastern News

Reverse inno­va­tion is char­ac­ter­ized by ultra low-cost, high qual­ity and uni­ver­sal access to address the needs of deprived pop­u­la­tion in urban and rural areas of the devel­op­ing world. Such inno­va­tion is “reverse” when it is brought “back” to devel­oped coun­tries such as the US. The con­cept of reverse inno­va­tion poten­tially applies to all indus­tries, from telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions and trans­porta­tion, through edu­ca­tion, to health care.
