• SMEs represent 95% of global business and contribute to 40% (on average) of national income (GDP) in emerging economies. 

• They are an important growth driver for the world economy with greater employment opportunities and sustainable prosperity.

• Digitalisation is one of the key levers to pull to ensure that SMEs achieve this potential.

• Openbusinesscouncil provides a business and trade directory, digital identity certification, and marketplace for SMEs. Its directory, resources, and marketplace help businesses connect with each other to enhance their respective digital transformations and improve their outreach. 

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are defined as non-subsidiary, independent firms which employ fewer than a given number of employees. There are approximately 400 million SMEs globally, forming the very backbone of the world economy. They are the main source of job creation, accounting for over 95% of companies and 60-70% of employment across the world.

While their growth and potential are enormous, a vast majority of these businesses face complex and often insurmountable challenges: a lack of business connections, limited awareness of digital tools and best practices, limited staff, lack of timely information, poor funding, and economies of scale.

During the pandemic, the world realised that digital ways of working, contactless interactions, and augmented and autonomous operations enable a high degree of business continuity. Around 90% of the world’s businesses and SMEs do not even have a website or digital profile and lack financial support. And even if they do, they pay for their digital footprint significantly to the service providers, and more importantly, have poor or no social media engagement.

Data from World Bank and OECD states that online platforms are central to the digital transition of the society, and provide important channels for growth. With digital transformation platforms, SMEs can improve their productivity, lower operational costs, access business intelligence services, and generate economies of scale and of scope.

SMEs face challenges when operating on online platforms. Lack of digital skills and non-adaptive business models are frequent barriers. Achieving digital transformation and realising the benefits requires a collective push across the whole society and industries. There is, thus, a global effort to now leverage the potentials that lie at the bedrock of digitalisation- to raise industry productivity, upskill employees, uptake new work practices, and create regional new hubs for entrepreneurship and innovation.
