The Future of Business in Africa’s Booming Digital Economy
Senior industry leaders will share their insights
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play a major role in most economies, they are particularly pivotal to Africa’s rising economic growth -- encompassing over 95 percent of the firms on the continent.
After facing unprecedented changes in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, SMEs are even more resilient and optimistic about the growth that lies ahead. Unlocking the region’s growth potential will require bridging the credit gap, strengthening SME value chains and boosting productivity via digitisation and technology adoption.
The Financial Times is partnering with Mastercard to present Unlocking SME Growth in Africa, a virtual webinar bringing key stakeholders from the private and public sector together to explore the state of SME competitiveness in Africa and how to maintain and grow business in the current climate.
The big picture, not just the individual strands of the business you work in
And build relationships with some of the biggest names in your industry
New approaches and strategies to help win market share
