International Conference overview

In4in Network Conference HCMC 2017

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are important players in the global economy. This is especially true in the case of emerging countries. For this reason, it is quite important to understand how this type of firms can respond to the strategic challenges that markets demand. The dynamic process of internationalization of economies around the world contests the existing understanding of the role of SMEs further.

This context demands dedicated attention to understand how entrepreneurial actions and innovation contribute to enhance the growth in emerging countries. Being a part of this initiative of iN4iN you have the opportunity to participate in conferences, symposia and seminars as well as excursions focusing on entrepreneurship, innovation and the future of SME promotion.
