Iqbal Quadir vertelt hoe zijn ervaringen als kind uit het arme Bangladesh, en later als bankier in New York, hem brachten tot het opstarten van een mobiele telefoonmaatschappij die 80 miljoen mensen van het platteland van Bangladesh met elkaar verbindt — en hij voorstander werd van bottom-up ontwikkeling.

Iqbal Quadir is an advocate of business as a humanitarian tool. With GrameenPhone, he brought the first commercial telecom services to poor areas of Bangladesh. His latest project will help rural entrepreneurs build power plants. Full bio
