Reflecting on the 6th annual Arise conference

Last month, we had the privilege of hosting our sixth annual conference, which brought together stakeholders from across the African continent and Europe. This year’s conference, held under the theme “Investing in Tomorrow – Leveraging SMMEs as catalysts for inclusive growth,” attracted a diverse audience passionate about driving economic development across the African continent.

The conference provided an engaging platform to delve into the transformative potential of Small, Medium, and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) in driving inclusive growth, with a particular focus on how banks can expand their market share in the SMME market. Through dynamic panel discussions, insightful keynote addresses, and interactive sessions, participants explored innovative strategies and emerging trends aimed at empowering SMMEs and enhancing their impact.

We were honoured to welcome esteemed speakers and delegates, including Arise shareholders, and the executive management of our partner banks. Their expertise, diverse perspectives, and invaluable contributions enriched the dialogue and fostered meaningful connections aimed at driving positive change.

As we reflect on the conference’s success, we are energised by the momentum generated and remain committed to championing the cause of SMMEs. Together, we will continue to explore new avenues for collaboration, share success stories, and advocate for policies that create an enabling environment for SMMEs to thrive.
