About this Event
Startups and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) create economic opportunities across geographic areas and sectors, employing broad segments of the labour force, including low-skilled workers, improve livelihoods, provide opportunities for skills development and contribute to economic diversification. They are dynamic and evolving, easy to adapt with market trends and serves as downstream support services for corporate companies in the value chains. However, the majority of start-ups or SMEs either fail in the first years of activity, 90% fails across early life-cycle, remain very small or lack growth capital. At the same time, many do not go beyond small local markets due to limited growth ambitions and innovation. Harnessing scale-up and competitive growth ambitions beyond boundaries is therefore vital if they are to remain the driving force of the economy, sources of employment and enhance participation. The agility of SMEs and start-ups allows them to be key players providing innovative technology solutions and products that address local challenges.
