Microfranchising links of interest

Interview with VisionSpring at Acumen Fund blog. Notice the same comments about market creation as being the unanticipated largest challenge as discussed in the last post about Kickstart.

NextBillion talking about the potential role of business students in the BoP. Notice the interest of students is outpacing the ability of the universities to deliver the education. Ashoka's University Network keeps good tabs on the universities that emphasize social entrepreneurship.

Another post at NextBillion mentioned microfranchising, this time coming from the Global Social Benefit Incubator in conversation with an operation out of Kenya, Coast Coconuts.
