As always, London Business School Review brings you fresh ideas and opinions from the School’s experts along with stories of our alumni community. In this edition of London Business School Review we look at opportunity. What are the latest ideas and who are the people developing new solutions to the challenges faced by businesses large and small across the world?

Half of the world's poor make a living as micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries. Though they typically employ fewer than five people, they can, and should, have a profound impact on lifting prosperity in these nations.

Kamalini Ramdas looks at how expanding farmers’ access to price data transforms production. Rajesh Chandy looks at the lessons micro-entrepreneurs in South Africa can teach global corporations.

John Mullins and his co-authors uncover a growing list of super-innovators who look beyond their own company’s issues to a far broader horizon – the bottlenecks of their industry as a whole. And we look at how you can get to grips with digital transformation.

We also talk to three experts in asset prices including Elroy Dimson, who summarise the pros and cons of investing in fine wine. And Taylor Begley looks at why pushing for a higher rating can be harmful.

Elsewhere, we speak to alumnus Ron Boire EMBAG2003, about his new role as CEO of Barnes & Noble, and Travis Ledwith EMBAGA2013 shares his incredible start-up story.
