Frugal Innovation

Frugal innovation is considered by many to be one of the key solutions that enables enterprises to access low-income markets in developing countries. However, the discourse on frugal innovation has painted a singularly product-centric picture of innovation by overemphasising the products’ value propositions, designs and underpinning technologies. This position paper aims to dispel the myth that frugal innovation for low-income markets is solely rooted in the configuration of a product and its components. Rather, frugal innovation is said to involve the implementation of novel ideas across the whole architecture of a business model.
