Globe Business joined forces with the Department of Trade and Industries’ (DTI) Bureau of Small and Medium Enterprises Development and Go Negosyo at the recent National MSME Summit 2023, aiming to help Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in their journey towards digital transformation.
With the theme “Upgrade, Upskill, and Upsize MSMEs,” the event explored various ways MSMEs can benefit from digitalization, making technology more accessible to entrepreneurs, and underscored the importance of elevating MSMEs’ capabilities, enhancing their skills, and expanding their operations.
The Summit served as a valuable platform for learning, collaboration, and inspiration. It brought together around 1,000 participants looking for opportunities and ways to overcome challenges in today’s globally competitive business environment.
At the Digitalization for MSMEs panel, KD Dizon, Head of Globe Business, shared insights on the benefits and support they provide MSMEs in their digital transformation journey. She also addressed common challenges faced by MSMEs in digitalization, including limited financial resources, lack of digital skills, and resistance to change.
“As an enabler of Filipino MSMEs, we aim to understand the pain points of entrepreneurs and guide them in facing these challenges head-on. We do this by equipping them with important knowledge and skills, and helping them develop a network towards achieving their goals and future-proofing their business,” Dizon said.
“Every business needs a partner that they can trust and Globe Business is THAT partner. We will be there on every step of their digitalization journey as they achieve business breakthroughs para sa tuloy-tuloy na success,” Dizon said.
“Digital adoption is a driver of business success. With accelerated digitalization, we at Globe Business aim to provide equitable access to digital tools and platforms. This is what we, in the Globe Group, have been striving to do by bringing innovative products and digital solutions to Filipinos to solve their daily pain points,” she said.
