Introduction for the Small & Medium Enterprise Development Course. The Small and Medium Enterprise Development course is aimed at enhancing students’ understanding of: the concept behind micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs); why the study of MSMEs is important; and what could be done to promote these enterprises. In 2012, the Word Bank stated that 600 million jobs needed to be created by 2020. The International Labour Organization, in 2011, stated 476 million workers live with their families on less than US$1.25 and one in three workers worldwide are living below a US$2 poverty line. These workers are poor even though they are working. Given this scenario, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are often considered as engines for innovation, economic growth, employment and social mobility. However, despite the widespread recognition of the role that SMEs play in sustained economic growth, data is limited and more research is needed to confirm the role and contribution of the small enterprise sector to the economy, particularly in developing countries. For example, in a study with Melina Mirmulstein and Martin Hommes from the International Finance Corporation (The World Bank Group), we found that while MSMEs are important in terms of number of firms and contribution to employment, there is room for improvement in terms of value added. Moreover, other researchers suggested reverse causation issues between economic growth and SME development and highlighted that the eagerness for SME policies was not always accompanied by a similar enthusiasm for tracking results and measuring impacts (for instance, in boosting the incomes of the poor). By reviewing the latest evidence, the course intends to highlight that the study of small firms is important not only because of their numeric significance and potential economic functions (fostering jobs, innovation, productivity, competitiveness, etc.) but also because small firms have distinctive business characteristics regarding management style, ownership patterns and product range, among others. This distinctiveness requires research and policies tailored to MSMEs. The course will study them with a global perspective and under the light of economic development.

Networking for SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) is the specialist topic of this video produced by 2 students for the course Venture Marketing Utrecht University. Being a SME involves looking for business partners, attracting customers and seeking advice, knowledge and resources. All of this can be obtained through one simple business tool: networking. This video touches upon various ways of networking, how to find sources and in what ways networking is beneficial for your enterprise. For this project we asked 2 program directors from the training institute De Baak (www.debaak.com) how they use networking in their job and how they would approach networking as a SME. By the support of literature we asked data on certain areas of networking, for example network size, level of formality, diversity, density, stability and flexibility. This made it possible to research the deeper underlying structures of networking. Sources We thank Kristin Jooss-Amadon and Rutger Slump from De Baak for their cooperation.

Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit 2018 - Day 1 Full BE is officially in the QC! And on day one of the Entrepreneurs Summit presented by Nationwide, we proudly welcomed 1,200 entrepreneurs, business owners, and professionals to the event in downtown Charlotte. In the first hour of the summit, we kicked off the afternoon with the ultimate speed networking session with Social Entrepreneur, Founder of Smart Hustle Magazine, and host for the Summit Ramon Ray. Hundreds of entrepreneurs and small business owners filled the Charlotte Convention Center for an hour of intentional networking. Within moments of being in the room, attendees were on their feet introducing themselves and sharing what they do for a living. And shortly after, they broke out into small groups where they offered one another business advice and shared marketing strategies in an effort to give as they connected. Countless connections in the spirit of this year’s theme: build, connect, elevate. Later in the evening, attendees were welcomed to the city by Kevin S. Dick, economic development director at City of Charlotte, who spearheaded the steering committee for the event. After his warm welcome, he introduced Derek T. Dingle, SVP and chief content officer at Black Enterprise; Charlotte Mayor Vi Alexander Lyles; and Columbia, South Carolina Mayor Stephen K. Benjamin for a fireside chat on doing business in the Carolinas. During their time on stage, the leaders discussed matters from government contracting to smart cities. And they both spoke candidly about the initiatives in their cities and opportunities for minority-owned businesses in their respective cities. And when it comes to engaging minority businesses in Charlotte, Mayor Lyles says, “In our community, I’ve found that minority businesses have several alliances that they have formed. And they insert themselves in the process.” That allows her to go the private sector to advocate for them. What’s key for Mayor Benjamin as he secures more opportunities for small business is access and transparency. “We try to make sure that we reach throughout our economic spectrum,” says Benjamin. And that is why he says that he has been intentional about forming partnerships for the betterment of all parties involved when doing business. Throughout the conversation, entrepreneurs sat on the edge of their seats listening and taking notes. As the night proceeded with priceless information, Lu Yarborough III, vice president of Diverse & Cause Marketing at Nationwide, shared remarks with attendees on behalf of the host sponsor. And the moment everyone was waiting for in anticipation finally arrived! President & CEO of BLACK ENTERPRISE, Earl “Butch” Graves Jr. took the stage to greet the crowd with enthusiasm and introduce and welcome Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, for a thought-provoking conversation on his journey as an entrepreneur and businessman.

Want to increase your sales results, then align your business with these 4 fundamental principles of scaling. A lot of businesses do not pay close attention to their sales activities. If you think that because you have a great product, customers will just begin to flood your business, think again. Having a great product design is just the beginning, you need a strong sales process to move your products into the market place and get paid what your product is worth. The four things I talk about in detail in the video are: 1. Organize your contacts. There is a limit to how many customers you can handle all in your head. The sooner you begin to adopt tools to help streamline your sales processes and business operations, the faster you will begin to see better results. Most businesses progress from using their brain, to using a journal or notepad, then to Excel spreadsheets, and eventually to a CRM tool. 2. Clear and Repeateable Sales Process Documenting your sales process helps you see the loop holes early and easily correct them. Another advantage is that you can tweak segments and see what actually works. Havig a documented repeatable sales process makes it easy for you to have a consistent output with your sales team as everyone is expected to follow the blue prints so you have some level of certainty. 3. Tracking and Analysis What gets measured gets improved. If you don't know your numbers, you won't be able to improve them. Keeping customer data such as birthdays, preferences, frequent orders make enables you to delight your customers by showing them you care about them. You are also able to identify gaps in your process and fix them quickly. 4. Data Driven Operations This is the game of the A players. Once you have data for different aspects of your businesses, you are able to make projects as per your projected revenue and also your budget spending for the next foreseeable period of time. With these four tips, you are able to position yourself for speedy growth and scalability as only a very small percentage of businesses every do this or take it seriously. You need to invest in the right tools and systems that allow you to harness these golden rules, and one tool that does that perfectly is a CRM. CRM is short for Client Relationship Management, and it basically helps you manage your interactions with clients, and helps you see the status of your operations with meaningful data and analysis in a single dashboard. One tool I recommend for small businesses is Bizbinge. Bizbinge helps small business owners manage the entire back end of their business. They provide a robust e-commerce storefront and a CRM that gives you everything from bookings & orders, inventory management, product deliveries, client management to reciepts, invoicing, payments, and so on.

A significant number of studies advocate the interdependence and complementarity between environmental, structural, strategic and personal variables in strategy formation. There are rare surveys that link these variables with small businesses performance. Combining several dimensions of these variables, this study aimed to verify which strategy configurations composed by the strategy development process, strategy content, entrepreneurial attitude, administrative mode and perceived environmental uncertainty were associated with the performance of small-sized clothing retail businesses. Data collected by survey with 228 companies and investigated by cluster analysis technique revealed two groups/clusters of companies with different configurations and performance levels. The results indicate the relationship of interdependence among variables in explaining the heterogeneity of organizational performance. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rauspm.2017.12.005

What does it mean for a company to have a moat? What are the key drivers to valuation? Pat Dorsey will use examples to shed light on these, and more questions. About the Book: Capitalism works. That’s why most businesses with high returns on capital attract competition that forces down profitability over time. However, a small minority of companies are able to defy the laws of economic gravity by creating competitive advantages, or “economic moats” that insulate them from competition and allow them to maintain high returns on capital. After spending fifteen years analyzing thousands of companies, Pat has identified a handful of structural characteristics that create competitive advantage. He will discuss these characteristics, how management teams can create and destroy competitive advantage, and how he applies competitive analysis in managing institutional capital at Dorsey Asset Management. About the author: Pat is the founder of Dorsey Asset Management, which manages concentrated global portfolios for institutional investors. Prior to starting Dorsey Asset, Pat was Director of Research for Sanibel Captiva Trust, an independent trust company with approximately $1 billion in assets under management serving high net worth clients. From 2000 to 2011, Pat was Director of Equity Research for Morningstar, where he led the growth of Morningstar’s equity research group from 10 to over 100 analysts. Pat developed Morningstar’s economic moat ratings, as well as the methodology behind Morningstar's framework for analyzing competitive advantage. Pat is also the author of two books — The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing and The Little Book that Builds Wealth — and has been quoted in publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, the New York Times, and BusinessWeek. Pat holds a Master’s degree in Political Science from Northwestern University and a bachelor’s degree in government from Wesleyan University. He is a CFA charterholder.

Google Tech Talks March 12, 2009 ABSTRACT "Billions of Entrepreneurs: How China and India are Reshaping Their Futures and Yours" Removing half a billion people from poverty and into the productive workforce will profoundly affect on the world economy. India and China are doing just that with insane growth rates and lots of what used to be American jobs: China is the factory floor and India the back-office, software shop. China is top-down party driven. India is a messy, vibrant democracy. This may be the complementary duo that changes the world. Including your world. Come hear Professor Tarun Khanna in a discussion about his book, Billions of Entrepreneurs: How China and India are Reshaping Their Futures and Yours. Called well worth reading by The Economist and entertaining by the Financial Times, Khanna's book shows how Chinese and Indian entrepreneurs are creating change through new business models. Speaker: Tarun Khanna Tarun Khanna is the Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor at the Harvard Business School, where he has studied and worked with multinational and indigenous companies and investors in emerging markets worldwide. He joined the faculty in 1993, after obtaining an engineering degree from Princeton University (1988) and a Ph.D. from Harvard (1993), and an interim stint on Wall Street. During this time, he has served as the head of several courses on strategy and international business targeted to MBA students and senior executives at Harvard. His new book, Billions of Entrepreneurs: How China and India are Reshaping Their Futures and Yours, was published in February 2008 by Harvard Business School Press (Penguin in South Asia), with translations into several languages underway. It focuses on the drivers of entrepreneurship in China and India and builds on over a decade of work with companies, investors and non-profits in developing countries worldwide. His scholarly work has been published in a range of economics and management journals, several of which he also serves in an editorial capacity. Articles in the Harvard Business Review (e.g. China + India: The Power of Two, 2007; Emerging Giants: Building World Class Companies in Emerging Markets, 2006) and Foreign Policy (e.g. Can India Overtake China?, 2003) distill the implications of this research for practicing managers. His work is frequently featured in global news magazines as well as on TV and radio. He serves on the boards and advisory boards of several companies in the financial services, automotive, life sciences and agribusiness sectors. He actively invests in and mentors startups in Asia, and volunteers time with non-profits in India, e.g. the Parliamentary Research Services in New Delhi, which seeks to provide non-partisan research input to Indias Members of Parliament in advance of legislative sessions with a view to enhancing the quality of democratic discourse. In 2007, he was nominated to be a Young Global Leader (under 40) by the World Economic Forum. He makes his home in Newton, MA, with his wife, daughter and son.

ERP Software For Small Business Get A Free Quote Now http://www.ksoftcloud.com/ In an extreme economy like this, entrepreneurs are thinking that its difficult to assess the best programming arrangements that can robotize their business and make them more proficient. ERP (Endeavor Asset Arranging) frameworks enable organizations to incorporate their back end bookkeeping, stock administration, CRM (Client Relationship Administration), POS (Purpose Of Offer) and online business as these highlights are generally tied in and work consistently together. Entrepreneurs who are contemplating to pick the correct programming are looked with many inquiries. Would it be advisable for them to pick old bookkeeping based frameworks that are non-coordinated with a web based business arrangement, for example, QuickBooks or search for more current innovation, for example, NetSuite, which is an online ERP framework for little and medium organizations? A portion of the undeniable inquiries that emerge are: Would it be a good idea for me to purchase programming as opposed to leasing it out? Would it be advisable for me to actualize my ERP framework in house or search for facilitated arrangement? Would it be advisable for me to converse with ERP sellers specifically or work with ERP affiliates? While assessing ERP programming, dependably work with affiliates who convey an incentive to your business. They can spare you time by utilizing their industry and frameworks experience and ensuring the last arrangement fits your business needs. Never purchase coordinate from a product organization's business agent as they simply need to make a speedy commission and they're not intrigued whether your item is actualized effectively. An affiliate is keen on a long haul relationship and has a personal stake in the achievement of your undertaking. On the off chance that you are a private company and your representatives are scattered crosswise over areas, search for electronic arrangements that are facilitated on another person's PC equipment. This approach is called SaaS (Programming As An Administration). In this model, you pay a month to month charge for use of the ERP, framework which enables you to chop down your underlying speculation yet may wind up costing you more over the long haul. Purchasing programming as opposed to leasing is prudent much of the time. In the event that you are intending to utilize the product over a long haul and have numerous workers who expect access to the framework every day, this is the prescribed model. Remember this approach requires an underlying speculation, and don't forget preparing and bolster. That is the place your affiliate becomes an integral factor again on the grounds that they can tailor an execution, preparing and bolster bundle that addresses your issues and spending plan. Continuously search for client references on the web instead of request that the organization delegate give you references. Another territory to investigate is independent venture gatherings where various individuals are examining such themes or even individual online journals that discussion about new highlights and issues. These will give you understanding on how great the product is regardless of the advertising buildup and to better know its restrictions. Some of the time you'll get the opportunity to hear within story.

Lahore, December 24, 2013 The Abraaj Group, a leading regionally based private equity firm operating in the growth markets of Asia, Middle East, North Africa, Turkey, Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America has announced a partnership today with the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) to support the SME sector in Pakistan. The partnership was initiated following the launch of the 'Pakistan Private Investment Initiative', which brought together USAID and The Abraaj Group to launch a Pakistan focused investment fund. An MoU, in this regards, was signed by Sardar Ahmad Nawaz Sukhera, Chief Executive Officer, SMEDA and Mr. Tabish Gauhar, Partner of The Abraaj Group at a ceremony held at SMEDA Head Office today. Mr. Tabish Gauhar was accompanied by Mr. Tayyab Tareen, Managing Director and Mr. Malik Ahmad Jalal, Director of The Abraaj Group on this occasion. The MoU covers a series of initiatives including: an information campaign highlighting the benefits of institutional capital and private equity; the identification of potential investee companies beyond the top three cities in Pakistan, and potentially utilizing SMEDA's Business Development Services (BDS) for capacity building in SMEs. The lack of access-to-capital has long been a constraining factor for SME growth in Pakistan and SMEDA, as the apex SME development organization in Pakistan is playing a key role in garnering support for the SME sector through institutional collaboration with local and international private sector partners and development finance institutions. The MoU with The Abraaj Group, like the ones recently entered into with the Islamabad Stock Exchange and the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry, are important steps in achieving SMEDA's goal of facilitating the growth of SMEs. CEO SMEDA, Sardar Ahmad Nawaz Sukhera, at the occasion said, "We at SMEDA are building partnerships with organizations for increasing investment through various channels. Abraaj's investment fund provides a much needed access-to-capital stimulus. This partnership, I am hopeful, will pave a way for Private Equity financing to play a positive role in lifting the growth trajectory of the business sector". On signing the Memorandum of Understanding, Mr. Tabish Gauhar, Partner at The Abraaj Group, said, "The Abraaj Group has extensive experience of entrepreneurship ecosystem development across global growth markets. We are very pleased to bring this experience to bear, in partnership with SMEDA, to create new avenues for entrepreneurs to access capital, and thereby lead the way for future domestic investments in Pakistan". It is hoped that the partnership between SMEDA and The Abraaj Group, would revitalize Pakistan's entrepreneurship ecosystem through capacity building, access-to-capital and more efficient dissemination of information to the SMEs.
