Launched in 2008, the Business Call to Action (BCtA) is a global membership platform that encourages private sector companies to develop innovative business models that combine profitability with development impact, in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Business Call to Action is a unique multilateral alliance between key donor governments including the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), UK Department for International Development and the United Nations Development Programme — which hosts the secretariat.
BCtA members are market leaders and innovators, committed to developing commercially viable business ventures that engage people living at the Base of the Economic Pyramid (BoP) as consumers, producers, suppliers, and distributors of goods and services. In more than 65 countries, business leaders are spearheading efforts to provide the poor with the tools and resources they need to succeed by promoting economic opportunity. BCtA provides a leadership platform for companies to demonstrate their commitment to development and to access global expertise on innovation at the BoP.
In order to build capacity of innovative inclusive businesses and support member companies in impact measurement and management, BCtA seeks to enlist an Istanbul-based intern. The intern will work with BCtA’s Impact team on entering, cleaning, updating and managing data within BCtA’s online Impact Lab.
