“Innovation at the Bottom of the Pyramid” – Jane Xing, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, China office.


Jane Xing is the Deputy Director of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, China office. She has a fascinating view into the foundation’s activities in China, Asia, Africa and other places.

Jonathan Woetzel, my co-professor for this course and these videos, sat down with Jane and asked her about “innovation at the bottom of the pyramid”. She also gave a great lecture to our students at Peking University Guanghua School of Management, which will be posted shortly.
