  • This is my sixth or seventh Annual Meeting I have attended, and I can see the change. Five years back, some of the same people were talking about ideas they were trying out. Now they are talking about successful, profitable businesses they are running based on those ideas. It is quite gratifying to see that shift happening.

  • I've been blown away by the quality of speakers, the seniority, and the level of thinking. It's very clear that if you're interested in SME Finance, if you're interested in being part of this global opportunity to change things for small businesses, this is the place to be.

  • The main conference highlight for me has been the amazing collaboration and knowledge-sharing that the participants have had. It is so cool that we get to share best practices with each other, because ultimately, we're all trying to solve the same problem, which is funding SMEs more quickly and simpler.

  • Returning from an inspiring week at the Global SME Finance Forum 2023 in Mumbai with Jane Prokop! We spent the week with a diverse community of FIs, development banks and Government entities, fintechs, NGOs and public and private sector banks. Our days were full of discussions on SME financing best practices and challenges and brainstorming ideas to better enable SMEs to run and grow their businesses. Thank you to the SME Finance Forum for a fantastic event, enabling connections and future innovation.
