SMEs: An Untapped Force for Global Education

Small businesses can make a big impact on education.

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) play a crucial role in our economy, and many are using their expertise as a force for good. Through mentoring, tutoring, scholarships, afterschool programming, financial contributions and pro bono support, small businesses are making a big impact on education.

On February 24, 2021 – to coincide with the launch of our new report An Untapped Force for Global Education: An exploration of small and medium enterprises – we hosted a virtual event to highlight how and why SMEs are supporting education.

Watch the report event recording below, featuring our key research insights and a panel discussion with three small business leaders.
