Episode 150: Breaking Payments: Next Stage of Growth for SMBs
Make some room for this fantastic episode – where we will be discussing “mergers and acquisitions” together with Olympian Tosin Oke (Payoneer) and Louis Clement (TapNation) to this conversation led by Executive Director – Matteo Rizzi, to the much-anticipated episode 150. Be honest – when you think of the topic, the first thing that comes to mind ... “Elon Musk attempt to buy Twitter or Facebook purchasing Instagram?”, that’s not wrong! But it happens on a much smaller level. According to KPMG, 2021 was a record year for M&A activity within the SMB sector and this trend is set to continue. So let’s deconstruct this – into trust, security/KYC, across-border payments, escrow services ... so much to consider! Luckily, we did it for you – have a listen at this Breaking Payments episode on the “NEXT Stage Of Growth for SMBs”.
