The aim of the sessions is to bring together SMEs and corporates from various sectors together to network and benefit from new business communications solutions. One of the goals is that SMEs benefit from mentoring workshops, training and nationwide talks on topics like marketing and management, finance and productivity. SMEs will also have access to business advice and additional skills to leverage technology for a competitive edge.
“These sessions will reach businesses right across the country,” said Diego Gutierrez, Tigo General Manager. “Tigo is very excited about taking a different approach in supporting the socio-economic development of the nation,” Mr. Gutierrez said.
Among the innovative business solutions presented at this forum is the launch of Tigo TELCO Solutions during the events, touted as ‘the one stop shop for your Telco needs.” Tigo Telco Solutions will provide tools that give business owners clarity on spend, allowing them to plan their business activities within budget. It also offers SMEs and corporates convenience to communicate affordably, as well, as bill paying options.
“As Tanzania’s most innovative network, Tigo continually seeks ways to offer the best value propositions for SMEs and corporates through various products and services.” Mr. Gutierrez said.
In addition to the Tigo SME communication solutions being shared, Mr. Ridhwani Kassim, SME Specialist, NBC Mwanza, addressed the audience of SME owners and operators on the topic “How to get financing for your business.”
Today’s session was held at the Gold Crest Hotel in Mwanza. Other sessions will be held in towns around the country by the end of the year.
