Micro, Small, and Medium-sized Enterprises Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of the tremendous contributions these organisations make to society.

MSMEs account for 90% of businesses, 60 to 70% of employment and 50% of GDP worldwide. As the backbone of communities everywhere, they contribute to local and national economies, sustain livelihoods, support inclusive growth and combat inequalities.

Right now, these businesses need support more than ever as they continue to navigate rising costs, conflicts and the climate crisis. They are the hardest hit by these challenges, but also play a critical role in helping society build back stronger.

At Vodafone, we know the vital role these organisations play and are committed to helping them not simply survive, but thrive. Through digital opportunities we can support their ambitions, which is why we created V-Hub, a support platform for small and medium-sized businesses that offers access to digital expertise, one-to-one consultancy and an online knowledge centre.

Available in 14 markets across Europe and Africa, our V-Hub team stays on top of the latest tech trends and innovations, so you don’t have to. For MSME day, we’re sharing a short content series from the team behind V-Hub by Vodafone to help you and your business navigate the cost-of-living crisis.
