Archipel&Co designs inclusive and sustainable strategies at headquarters, operational and commercial levels, in partnership with our clients’ functional, category, brand, country, factory leaders.
Archipel&Co has been at the forefront of inclusive business and has helped create and scale some of the most iconic projects in the space.

In the inclusive business space, Archipel&Co works on three main dimensions:

– Improving access to products and services for marginalised and hard-to-reach communities. Our approach usually combines social innovation, non-traditional distribution channels and insight-driven marketing. We help clients understand the ecosystem in which they need to operate and work with them to quickly design, test, scale effective solutions. For example, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation recently asked us to conduct ecosystem studies in Kenya and Ethiopia to encourage innovators in the animal health space to enter and improve the solutions available, especially for small-scale farmers. These reports are available here:



 Connecting informal micro-entrepreneurs within the value chain: Companies are increasingly engaging with micro-entrepreneurs and stakeholders with whom they may not have a direct contractual relationship but where significant mutual-value opportunities exist. Examples include suppliers like smallholder farmers, distributors like street-vendors or mom & pop shops, or self-employed workers. One of the key challenges for these companies is to attract, retain and motivate these value chain partners. Archipel&Co has unique expertise in designing and implementing innovative incentive schemes and loyalty plans based on social benefits. These plans drive business performance (sales, recruitment, loyalty, etc.) by maximizing the company’s social impact.


– Help communities better collaborate among them-selves. Archipel&Co works with the largest collaborative platforms to enhance their social impact.
