Archipel&Co partners with clients to accelerate the transition to an inclusive economy.
Archipel&Co is a purpose-driven consultancy with the experience to deliver pragmatic support across a variety of sectors with a focus on emerging, informal and precarious markets. We deliver operational and commercial results by building market insights, designing inclusive approaches and testing innovations in-market.
We are experts in rapid qualitative and quantitative market research in world’s fastest growing and most challenging markets with decades of experience in social and inclusive business model design, testing, execution and evaluation. We combine experience from business management, development, social enterprise, corporate sustainability, innovation, start-ups and corporate strategy. Example projects include:
- Developing new value propositions and business models focused on low-income and emerging middle-class customers
- Identifying and optimising new sales and distribution channels in emerging markets
- Improving how large organisations engage with the informal sector and micro- to small-enterprise for mutual benefit
We are all a combination of thinker, doer and change-agent.
We operate in the sweet-spot where commercial benefit and social impact work together. Our experience has shown that integrating marginalised, low-income and emerging-middle-class communities as suppliers, partners or customers is critical to business success in those markets. Inclusive business is also a critical component of delivering a more equitable and sustainable economy, core to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
