SME Trade Zone

STZ Pic

Coming out of South Africa: SME Trade Zone (STZ) is a potential answer for small businesses who are looking to find services offered by those in the same community.  Often Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are unsupported by government – due to variety of reasons such as not meeting regulatory requirements or not employing enough people – and finding support within a network of other small businesses rather than relying on government aid thus makes sense.

Collaborative communities seek to share skills, experiences and contacts – and MTZ pools this together in an online portal.  It “uses the power of the community to negotiate discounts on services and facilities that every small business needs,” whilst offering a range of small-business services to a centralized group of users.
