Member companies represent a diversity of sectors, including financial services, information and communication technology, agribusiness, manufacturing and extractive industries.
How to partner
Companies apply to join the BCtA by submitting an application form to the Secretariat.
Worldwide, 94 companies have responded to the BCtA by making commitments to improve the lives and livelihoods of millions through commercially-viable business ventures that engage low-income people as consumers, producers, suppliers, and distributors of goods and services. Participating companies benefit from the BCtA’s ability to provide:
- a global leadership platform and opportunities to share expertise, knowledge, and best practices for market-based approaches to development
- initiative development advice and assistance
- linkages with companies, donors, and other key stakeholders.
