    Meeting SME’s where they are - Building inclusive ecosystems for Africa’s small business owners

    Micro and small businesses have been, and still are, the spine and lifeblood of the African economy, making up 90% of businesses on the continent.

    Many of these businesses have still been operating in traditional ways and serving non-digital customers. With Covid-19 expediting the digital transformation process, businesses - big and small - have been forced to adapt to operate successfully in a more digital-first environment.

    To ensure that the digitalization of Africa’s market doesn’t leave micro and small businesses behind, digital solutions must be inclusive and create business-ready environments. But how can we ensure that African SMEs become digitally enabled?

    In this webinar we will share from our own experience on how to create such an environment, and the actions we took in vcita to get there, including:

    • Closing the digital literacy gap through tech inclusion 
    • Making a positive impact on local communities
    • Building the foundations for digital inclusion and small business growth in a technology-accelerated world
    • Building the foundations for digital inclusion and small business growth in a technology-accelerated world
