Global SME Finance Forum 2023

12-14 September 2023 |  Mumbai, India

The Global SME Finance Forum is the world’s highest-level, most technically in-depth, most geographically diverse event focused solely on SME financing. Since 2015, its forward-thinking agenda, tackling topics such as sustainable finance and fintech partnership, has attracted C-level industry leaders, leading policymakers, and regulators from around the world.

This year’s meeting will take place in Mumbai, from September 12th to 14th, and focus on building digital ecosystems to win the SME market. SME financing is moving to beyond-banking ecosystems addressing customers’ fundamental needs in a single, easy-to-use service. Ecosystems offer traditional banking products and many other business services, such as invoice management, payroll support, tax preparation and inventory management. 

The meeting will highlight India’s achievements in this area while also bringing in a wide range of other examples of successful ecosystem building from around the world.  

Attendees will learn how to participate, orchestrate and build a digital ecosystem platform for SMEs. 

Other cross-cutting themes will be integrated into the 3-day event, covering, SME ESG issues, supply chain financing, financial inclusion of women entrepreneurs and migrant/displaced entrepreneurs, risk management, agrifinance, and digital transformation. The program also includes study visits to local SME finance innovators, fintech pitches, communities of practice sessions, Global SME Finance Forum Awards and many networking opportunities. 

Discover the agenda and join 700+ senior executives from SME Finance institutions worldwide to make partnerships, learn from peers, and elevate your business game. 

We look forward to seeing you and your colleagues at our partner’s Global SME Finance Forum!
