Carolin's professional experience

I am working as an independent consultant on the business-development nexus based in London.

Recent projects include my role as Learning and Monitoring Officer for the Business Innovation Facility, a DFID funded initiative to support the development of inclusive business models, as well as the 2010 and 2011 meetings series on ‘Harnessing the Power of Business for Development Impact’, working with Business Action for Africa and the Overseas Development Institute.

Prior to continuing my career in the UK, I have worked for 2 years with the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ), an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development, in Germany and Peru.

I hold a graduate degree in business and a post-graduate degree in Development Management from the London School of Economics.

At a public event last night around challenge funds, various speakers referred to it as such (the term nobody really wants to talk about), but then it seemed to be central to the discussion anyway:…

Are companies reaching the poorest of the poor?

As we are approaching the end of the BIF pilot, we are busy counting, categorising, clustering and cross-tabulating data collected over the lifetime of the pilot and already look forward to sharing final results.

In advance of that we have just published two new spotlights that may be of interest to practitioners wanting to understand some of the complexities of impacts at the BoP, how they can be categorised and shared:  …
