Building Strategic Intelligence Series 2021 - Future Ready SMEs: Driving Impact - English

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which represent around 90% of all firms globally, provide roughly 70% of all employment and, by some estimates, contribute to up to 70% of global GDP.

In this session, we speak to two companies from the Forum's New Champions community which highlight the impact of SMEs and discuss how it can be scaled.
