‘SME Insights’ to connect SMEs with investors and business leaders
Gulf Capital SME Insights is a new digital initiative launched by Gulf Capital and MEED to support the region’s SME economy. The digital platform is a multi-channel programme of activity to provide SMEs with the information, intelligence and support to make efficient business decisions and adapt corporate strategies to achieve success following COVID-19.
Dr. Karim El Solh, CEO at Gulf Capital, said, “SMEs are undoubtedly the backbone of the global economy. With SMEs creating employment opportunities, championing creativity and driving innovation in line with regional economic growth visions, it is essential that we protect our SMEs more than ever to minimise the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and falling oil prices. This initiative with MEED-GlobalData was set up to ensure that the SME community has the necessary foundations to respond, grow and succeed in the “New Normal”.”
A series of bi-monthly webinars hosted by the two companies will cover technology, financial solutions, legal perspectives, and communications strategies to address the key challenges. Following the webinar, a virtual roundtable will allow for additional dialogue between participants and individual moderators for further insight and awareness. The series will conclude with the Gulf Capital SME Insights Summit in September.
Full details on the upcoming programme will be available on the Gulf Capital SME Insights website.
