Rob Katz – A Request for Proposal and its sponsors – World Resources Institute and Acumen Fund – have released a request for proposal to overhaul the site.

Since its founding in 2005, has grown to become one of the more prominent websites and blogs discussing base of the pyramid (BoP) approaches to poverty and environmental degradation. As part of’s recently-signed partnership between WRI and Acumen Fund, we are funding a round of upgrades to the site that are aimed at improving user experience and making the information on-site easier to find, use and share.As we noted on May 15, WRI and Acumen Fund have committed resources to re-design and re-launch later this year. We hope this re-design will make the site more user-friendly, enabling smoother subscription, sharing, commenting, story suggestion and a range of other features. That time has come.

If you are a web developer, or know one, please forward this RFP along. We are particularly interested in working with socially-minded firms and/or firms based in low-income countries.
