In recent years, emerging markets have been the theatre of the introduction of new goods, new methods of production, the opening of new markets and the conquest of new sources of supply. A large number of these innovations were brought in by multinational companies eager to conquer new customers and sources of profit. Yet the recent rise of the Global South middle class is giving way to new challenges and new opportunities; opportunities that shrewd local or diasporan entrepreneurs and innovators are seizing every day.
Emerging Innovation is a new magazine of critical perspectives on dynamic entrepreneurs and self starters emerging from across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
