Commerce 3.0 for Development

Trade and globalization have no doubt resulted in increased jobs and wealth around the world, but up until now it has only been the few largest players who have been able to take full advantage of globalization. If a small business wished to participate in the global economy, it was largely relegated to providing an intermediate product to a large multi-national supply process. This model for trade is the result of the immense resources that have traditionally been required to develop an international consumer base and deliver a product or service efficiently across borders.
