My heartfelt wishes to all Indians for the 72nd Independence Day. To be an Indian is much more than about place we call home. It’s a deeply felt commitment to the higher principles of liberty, equality and fraternity and to the duties entrusted on us as citizens. Fundamental duties enshrined in the constitution require us to develop scientific temper and to strive for excellence in all sphere of individual and collective activity.
India is making conscious efforts to achieve the goal of economic supremacy and we, at SMBConnect, have pledged to contribute earnestly by providing a networking, resource sharing and knowledge dissemination platform to SME owners and entrepreneurs across India. To further our aim, we have themed Start Manage Expand Season 5, slated to begin from September, on Blueprint for Digital Economy to help SMEs become the launch pads of digital transformation. The season will cover cities across India with digital frontrunners, industry experts and entrepreneurs sharing essential business know-how on the theme.

Digital revolution is poised to usher in a new system of economy. By 2020, the probability of success of SMEs will depend on their ability to create digitally-enhanced products, services, and experiences. The expansion of digital transformation at a macroeconomic scale signals a new digital economy.

Technology is changing the way we work and ‘disrupt or be disrupted’ is becoming the new normal! SMEs are jockeying for position in the new digital economy.
