International Society for Small and Medium Enterprises (ISSME) creation was driven by the strong desire to develop a global association of small businesses and their supporting institutions for the sustainable and inclusive growth of Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs). It works in line with the following principles to achieve this objective:
Knowledge – Today we are in knowledge economy as information plays a vital role in business operations. Knowledge has become the essence of business giving a competitive edge. Knowledge is power as it drives innovation, helps save costs, improves efficiencies and opens new vistas.
Networking – In a globalized world where national borders have been blurred and trade barriers have been dismantled, networking is key to get business opportunities and effortlessly doing business. ISSME has a global platform that provides endless networking opportunities for SMEs & their support institutions so as to create an enabling environment for sustainable and inclusive growth.
Growth – Grow or die is the law of nature that applies even to businesses. Growth is prerequisite for any business to survive. ISSME, thus, focuses on continuous growth of SMEs by sharing technology, processes, experiences, expertise and best practices.
