Our thoughts on small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs)
The SME sector represent a fundamental part of global supply chains and are major customers and indeed suppliers to many larger companies. The recognition, development, protection and incentivisation of the SME sector is a critical success factor in all economies and vital for sustainable and enduring growth globally.
Centigo mentor and advise SME leaders and owners who seek expert support to grow their businesses from experienced and reputable consultants who understand the unique challenges of SMEs. We also partner with state agencies, local authorities, financial services firms, corporates and investors who have particularly strong SME development mandates.
We deliver carefully tailored programmes, often in ‘sprint’ format (short time, high impact), to CEO’s /Senior Executives across numerous sectors including Technology, Engineering, Food, Hospitality, Financial Services, Craft, Tourism, and Service Sector.
Examples of what we do:
