Promoting Cooperatives for Sustainable and Inclusive SME Development

The two-day 10th Annual SME Conference and Expo 2022 is running from 17th – 18th November 2022. The theme is: Promoting Cooperatives for Sustainable and Inclusive SME Development.

The physical conference will feature high-level speakers and interactive panels involving Policy Makers, Youth Leaders, Business, and Innovation Leaders, MSMEs, and key partners. Specifically, stakeholders will discuss Enterprise production and sustainability through cooperatives.

The conference will also offer a platform for participants to discuss challenges that provide great opportunities for MSMEs to realize the full potential of enterprise cooperatives for sustainable and inclusive growth.

A comprehensive approach that involves partnerships between the government, academia and private sector actors can collaboratively work on addressing three key areas:

  • Providing guidance and advice on the creation of an enabling environment for enterprise cooperative development at county and national levels.

  • Capacity building and development of education and training materials and other tools to enable cooperative enterprises to be competitive in the marketplace.

  • Dialogue and evidence-based advocacy and research on the economic, social, societal, and political importance of enterprise cooperatives, to inform policy and practice.

Your participation will enable the triple helix of government, industry, and academia operating in the context of an entrepreneurial university to facilitate the policy process within a dynamic national innovation system.
