MSME NATIONAL TECH CONCLAVE
THURSDAY, 2nd MARCH, 2023
BANGALORE INTERNATIONAL HOTEL
The MSME National Tech Concalve’23 is a Government of India, Ministry of MSME event, organised by the MSME Development Facilitation Office, Bangalore, to help MSMEs adopt technology tools for their businesses to scale up.
When it comes to embracing new technologies, small businesses face unique challenges and opportunities. But what are these, and how can these provide a competitive advantage?
For MSMEs there are often fewer resources available to explore business technology trends; in turn, this means they are unable to assess which tools they ought to be considering. Similarly, a lack of capital expenditure or cash-flow issues can make it difficult to find the finances to invest in new technologies, particularly if the return on investment is not immediately apparent.
Why Do MSMEs Need to Adopt Emerging Technologies?
World Bank estimates say World Bank says SMEs represent 90% of global businesses and more than 50% of employment. With every passing year, these numbers are increasing. Not wanting to lag, SMEs continuously look for ways to maximize their profits without compromising quality, cost, or efficiency. If you are unaware of the many lucrative benefits of tech adoption, SMEs should adopt the emerging tech.
The fact there is typically less red tape, fewer legacy IT systems, and shorter sign-off processes mean that SMEs ought to be well-placed to act more quickly than large enterprises when incorporating tech that can provide a competitive advantage.
With cost no longer a barrier, the key challenge small businesses face is in their own culture. New technologies, like AI, are fully developed and ready to be implemented. But SMEs must have a proactive approach to researching and adopting new tools. Those that do aggressively pursue opportunities through innovative digital solutions will gain a competitive advantage over their rivals – those that don’t could quickly see themselves losing ground.
Hear from 20+ speakers and connect with over 100+ MSME attendees. A wide array of topics will be covered, from Cloud to 5G and Web3 to diversity and sustainability.

Cloud Computing – Getting on board with new technologies
MSMEs are well placed to act fast and benefit from new technologies. Even more so thanks to the proliferation of cloud computing, which is now critical to the IT makeup of the vast majority of organisations.
The Rise of Artificial Intelligence
Through advances in AI and machine learning over recent years, computer programmes are now able to analyse vast sources of data, recognise pertinent trends, and recommend potential actions to help businesses improve internal efficiency or boost their commercial growth. Unlike previous forms of data analytics, which would provide insight into past events, AI is about delivering forward-facing results that help a business move with confidence and speed.
Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a significant increase in global cyber threats. Today, micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) are the new cyber-attack target. But unfortunately, cybercrime prevention is generally neglected within this sector. Cybersecurity is the security of customer information, intellectual property, and any other information that’s critical for financial gain.
