The 8th Annual BCtA Forum will take place at the Japan Society in New York during Global Goals Week on 28 September 2018. Occuring on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly, the BCtA Annual Forum provides a unique multi-stakeholder platform to support Inclusive Business action – fostering public-private dialogues, forging new partnerships and alliances, and exploring innovative business solutions to accelerate sustainable development and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Business Call to Action is the leading United Nations platform on Inclusive Business innovation. Technological Disruption in the World of Inclusive Business, organised in partnership with the Inclusive Business Action Network (IBAN), will showcase practical applications of innovative digital technologies by inclusive business and set out supporting strategies to leverage their use to improve lives at the Base of the Economic Pyramid (BoP). The focus will be on impactful technology solutions that have the ability to yield long-term benefits and help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The forum will also look at how businesses can use digital technologies to manage long-term risks and find opportunities to grow and develop their business while generating the social and environmental benefits that their customers, investors and the global community value. Business leaders will share their perspectives on how to leverage these disruptive technologies to promote sustainable development and help leave no one behind.
