The Global SME Finance Forum 2015 was SME Finance Forum’s first annual gathering of senior leaders of financial institutions, development finance institutions and fintech companies that promote access to finance for small and medium enterprises, and was organized in partnership with CapPlus. This flagship event is one of the few truly global conferences for SME-focused institutions. Drawing together representatives from institutions across regions, as well as financial sector regulators, it aims to foster a lively exchange of knowledge and networking amongst peers and high-level participants. The two-day program was designed to provide insights on innovation and transformative technologies that can accelerate small business finance. This year’s event also marked the launch of the SME Finance Forum’s global membership network.
