Latin America is today an incubator for business models that primarily aim to generate positive social and / or environmental impact. Highly innovative and creative businesses have emerged in the region serving customers or providing employment opportunities at the base of the pyramid.

This half day conference took place at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland to examine current trends, show examples and provide ample opportunity for interaction and discussion on how Latin America is doing business as unusual. The conference was jointly organized with the Centro Latinoamericano-Suizo at the University of St. Gallen and followed the annual retreat of the Humanistic Management Network. Following the welcome address by Prof. Yvette Sánchez, Director of the Centro Latinoamericano-Suizo at the University of St. Gallen and Ernst von Kimakowitz of the Humanistic Management Center the opening keynote was presented. The first keynote was followed by a panel discussion and an interactive case - lab providing a real world example for impact generating businesses from Latin America. The conference afternoon closed with a second keynote before a networking cocktail was served.
