Join us for a live written discussion with a panel of experts to explore how businesses can strengthen SME ecosystems in frontier markets. This discussion will take place on Thursday 16 May 15:00 / 10:00 EST
Large businesses operating in frontier markets rely on many Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in their value chain. We will explore how businesses can enhance the effectiveness of their SME support, by taking a more holistic approach; one that starts from an understanding of the wider business ecosystem in which SMEs operate and the multiple external barriers to growth that they face. Why, when and how should business take an ecosystems approach to SME development?
