Empowering Small & Medium Enterprises

Many SMEs across Africa do not have the skills or capacity to bring their business online. To help empower them, Microsoft announced a new online hub through which African SMEs will have access to free, relevant products and services from Microsoft and other partners. The hub will aggregate the available services which can help them expand their business locally, find new business opportunities outside their immediate geography, and increase their overall competitiveness.


As a ‘welcome offer’, Microsoft will provide free domain registration for the period of one year and free tools for SMEs interested in creating a professional web presence. The hub is expected to open in April initially in South Africa and Morocco and will expand to other African markets over time. For each market, Microsoft will be partnering with public and private organizations which share the same ambition: to enable the growth of small businesses to help accelerate African economic development and create jobs.
