The case describes the founding and growth of Community Enterprise Solutions (CE Solutions), an NGO working at the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) in Guatemala.

    Students will:
  • Understand and illustrate how social entrepreneurs identify opportunities for creating new products or services.
  • Evaluate the value created by the sustainability and the robustness of the underlying business model, the MCM.
