The Institute already offers its members one of the largest Midmarket resource libraries in the world featuring articles, reports and writings of great interest to the executives of midsize companies and those that meet their needs. The search feature added for videos only enhances the library’s value for users.
The videos offered through the Knowledge Center cover a wide range of topics including: confronting the unique challenges of midmarket manufacturing companies; implementing successful family-owned business practices; embracing the realities of being a company that choose to be great, rather than just grow; management of employee owned companies; and the latest expert advice offered to midsize exporters.
Among the notable business leaders video-interviewed by Ram Iyer, CEO of The Midmarket Institute, include: Mr. Paul Darley, CEO of Darley & Company, a family owned business in Illinois; Mr. Michael Campbell, Chairman of Mannington Mills in New Jersey; and several thought leaders in Germany’s Mittelstand including Dr. Patrick Adenauer, President of the German Family-owned Business Association (ASU) and Dr. Hermann Simon, author of ‘Hidden Champions’.

"The Midmarket Institute Knowledge Center just keeps getting bigger and better,” according to Iyer. “The addition of a searchable video page with results tied to particular Midmarket challenges is both significant and cutting edge. As far as we know, no other organization has a website taxonomy that allows for this. It is being very well received by our users,” Iyer continues.
While most Knowledge Center videos require paid organizational membership, there are several that simply require free registration for viewing. One of the goals of the free videos is also to raise public awareness of the midmarket - a previously neglected yet important business sector that is responsible for nearly 1/3 of national GDP and 1/3 of all private sector employment.
