Our March monthly FinTech Seminar will focus on Innovations in Working Capital services for SME's
SME's play a significant role in the economy and yet are often constrained by a lack of timely access to working capital, typically due to the delay in payments made by debtors. Innovations in Financial Technology are now delivering online platforms that directly address these needs in new ways and with new efficiencies. The purpose of this Seminar is to explore these new platforms and to understand the Entrepreneurial opportunities in the broader market.
The session includes a free Guide to Working Capital Platforms that digs deeper into the main players and identifies opportunities for Entrepreneurs. The report will be issued the day before the event, you may download previous Reports here.
We will be videoing the session for those of you who are unable to attend. You may click here to watch the videos from our previous seminars and here to see the photos.
