First Round of Essilor Base-of-Pyramid Fellowship Successfully Completed
Essilor successfully concluded the first run of its EBoP Fellowship program, first announced last October by the Essilor Base-of-Pyramid Innovation Lab to give five talented individuals the opportunity to collaborate with the Group in developing projects that have a social impact in underprivileged communities.
Starting from February this year, over a period of six months, Essilor’s first five EBoP fellows who come from different backgrounds and nationalities, were based in various BoP markets and worked with local teams to lead projects including: piloting and optimizing new and existing inclusive business models, formulating market entry strategies, developing communications solutions and conducting research studies. This helped them foster a deep understanding of local conditions and gain first-hand experience in inclusive business and philanthropic initiatives.
