Wouldn’t it be great to know what makes some small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) really successful? What advice do SMEs need when planning a sales and marketing strategy? At what stage should technology be brought into the picture? What about intellectual property issues? And cash-flow management?

These questions and more will be the hot topics at the 2018 Business Day TV SME Summit on March 8 in Parktown, Johannesburg.

Standard Bank, Credit Guarantee and the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants are the headline partners of this year’s event, which aims to "ignite growth potential" among small-business owners and entrepreneurs. Corporate partners include Adams & Adams, BDO, FundingHub and GROW

Conference topics include:

  • Reimagine the lightbulb: protecting and leveraging SMEs' intellectual property in the 21st century
