Why should I attend or sponsor the BigFive Summit?

You should attend or sponsor the Summit if any of the following objectives resonate with you. For many of you, more than one of these statements will ring true. 

  • I have a software product that addresses the small business market and I am looking to form partnerships with SME customers to help me take this product to market. 

  • My startup has built an SME-facing software product and I am looking for investors. 

  • I am from an enterprise company that addresses the SME market. We want to expand our offering to include products outside of our core solution in order to attract more SME customers and better retain our existing customers. 

  • My SME-facing software company is looking to integrate with complementary companies to make our product more attractive, easier to use, more capable, etc. 

  • My agency is looking to integrate more products into the tech stack that we use to service our small and midsize customers. 

  • I am with an international company that believes in the promise of the African SME market. I need to learn, establish relationships, gain visibility, and find local partners. 

  • I just want to learn more about the technology ecosystem supporting African small businesses.
