In every post-COVID discussion for small businesses, we’re sure you’ve heard it all: Digitizing, pivoting and future-proofing your business are essential. The question is: how do you actually digitize, pivot, and future-proof? Who can you approach to answer all your questions – and actually bridge the gap between bouncing back in theory, and doing it?


As entrepreneurs, we are struggling to navigate during these challenging times. It’s crucial to invest in the right resources with a concrete fool-proof way forward so that we can survive and eventually thrive.


Globe myBusiness Academy invites you to CONNECT, an online business matching event that helps MSMEs to recover in the new normal. Through this event, you can connect to investors, enablers, suppliers, and even potential customers.


Together with partners from different industries, CONNECT is a platform that creates networking opportunities that will help MSMEs bridge the gap between idea and action. By design, the event shall provide key insights from industry leaders in terms of the standards that every business should take into consideration.
