  3. What insights are there in how to go about the process of design?
  4. What are the factors behind a successful business model?
  5. How are companies overcoming the challenges of marketing and distributing products to BoP consumers?
  6. How can different players work together - large companies, social entrepreneurs, government and civil society?
  7. Do designers take gender sufficiently into account when designing for the BoP?
  8. What are some of the next big opportunities?
  9. Any final thoughts, tips or advice for those designing for the base of the pyramid?
