We will engage futurist and digital strategist Herman Singh in a candid and challenging conversation about how organizations must adapt to a dramatically transformed post-pandemic environment and how they can help SMMEs emerge stronger from this crisis. Singh is the author of a new book, “DI-VOLUTION: An essential guide to winning in a digitally transformed post-pandemic environment”.
The Small Business Fintech Revolution
Online and mobile payments have played a pivotal role in modernizing how small businesses operate. What does the future hold for SMME fintech? Will investors continue to support African fintech at current levels? We’ve assembled leaders of the region’s fintech revolution to explore these and other critical questions about one of the most important sectors of the region’s digital economy.
Exploring Africa’s SMME eCommerce Revolution
eCommerce was on the rise on the continent before the pandemic hit. As Africa entered and is now emerging from lockdown, we will examine how the trajectory of eCommerce has been altered, and what opportunities this presents to the BigFive community and the region’s small businesses.
Our target audience is NOT small businesses – instead we exist to support companies that serve SMEs, especially those companies that help small businesses to operate in, and benefit from, the digital economy. Here are some examples of the type of companies that will benefit from attending and participating in BigFive Summit:
● Online and mobile payment platforms
● Location data suppliers
● Investors in digital enterprises
● NGO’s with a vested interest in SMEs and/or e- commerce
