Entrepreneurial Revolution dialogues were started in The Economist in 1976 to question how differently organisations would need to be valued if net generation youth of the 2010s were to be the most productive, sustainable and free to collaborate around the most heroic goals advancing the human lot.
By the mid 1980s, our models of the most valuable brands in the post-industrial knowledge networking economy identified these foci of hi-trust brand valuation differences from the industrial age:
Similarities with past way so f valuing brands involve scaling factors of awareness, distribution or access, and converting first time trial of the brand (which may be as much about people giving their time to being trained in the knowledge app as buying with money)
An example of a brand leader we value most highly in 2013 is BRAC. Over 41 years this open networking organisation has become the world's largest and most collaborative NGO.
BRAC interfaces hundreds of open knowhow franchises that have linked in the sorts of human progress across Bangladesh shown
It is the case that BRAC only started international extension of its knowledge franchises about 15 years ago and has so far reached X nations with some of its services. So while BRAC has scaling challenges to prove its wholly global capacity, it has chosen partners in ways that have minimized greenwashing (a hugely costly trap that large NGOs have often fallen into since the start of this uneconomical practice in the early 1990s). Moreover 2013 is the first year that Massive Open Online Curriculum have opened up the net's capacity to let anyone be a knowledge sharer with millions of youth.
In a survey of post 2015 millennium goals on what knowledge would most benefit viralisation across worldwide youth social networks, BRAC would likely come top. Better yet education curriculum is a core capacity at BRAC which runs over 50000 rural schools and its own university and whose leader Sir Fazle Abed was the inaugural winner of the wise education Oscars sponsored by Qatar. BRAC also has the best partnerships in mobile app world when it comes to pro-youth economic practice areas such as cashless banking.
While the millennium goals world has much to learn across all of Bangladesh's grassroots networking and pro-womens and pro-youth organisations, BRAC has established collaborative interfaces which are as good as any organisation we can find with over 100000 employees and tens of millions of knowledge empowered customers who BRAC helps end poverty through designing value chains in ways that sustain their income generation and learning for a lifetime.
