Global Overview

Improving SME’s access to capital produces economic benefits by creating jobs and bringing innovation to the market place. Accelerating the flow of capital into SMEs and monetizing SME values in the capital markets is a global problem and opportunity for every stakeholder in this segment.  Leveraging the power of knowledge by offering access to SME-level capital market information and introducing service and solution providers creates unique opportunities. The objective is to help decision-makers act on these opportunities.

Importance of Capital Markets

Capitalizing small-to-medium-enterprises and providing an exit strategy for their investors is key to economic prosperity because smaller companies are the primary new job creators in most countries.

 

This site aggregates and enables exchanging information about projects to organize and develop SME-level capital markets. The objective is to present information that helps stakeholders across a spectrum of capitalizing companies, monetizing values, and organizing and developing SME-level capital markets.

Small-to-Medium-Enterprises Value Proposition

SMEs deliver value by creating new jobs and wealth. Businesses and local economies are increasingly interconnected through establishing alliances. SME business models on all sides of alliance relationships must be capitalized. International trade of SME goods and services can only be sustained by undertaking initiatives to organize and develop entry-level capital markets.

Knowledge exchange supports SMEs becoming economic development value propositions.

 

SME Capital Markets and its website support knowledge exchange by offering services to introduce SME-level capital market specialists, surveying the capital market ecosystem about emerging issues, producing market intelligence reports, and helping management teams realize value creation in the capital markets.

SME Capital Market Research Reports

SME Capital Market research reports focus on topics that are not covered by other sources. To the extent issues or trends can be addressed by creating information and intelligence that influences decision-makers, efforts will be made to develop research reports about these topics.

SME Capital Market Surveys

Surveys are undertaken to develop granular information about SME-level capital market issues.

Survey responses from management teams, officers, directors, service and solution providers, and stakeholders who want to succeed in entry-level capital market projects guide an ongoing effort to develop relevant content on the SME Capital Markets’ website.
