Maxis Business’ nationwide UsahaWIRA roadshow to help inspire SME digitalisation
- 5-stop nationwide UsahaWIRA roadshow to bring insightful information and solutions from top industry leaders in one place to empower Retail and F&B SMEs to go digital
- Series of stories to spotlight hero SMEs and inspire other businesses to learn how easy it is to digitalise
- Initiatives are part of Maxis Business UsahaWIRA programme launched in 2021 to support SMEs through the SME Digitalisation Grant
Heroes inspire us to dream more, learn more, do more and become more. Putting the spotlight on resilient SMEs all over Malaysia, Maxis Business has rolled out its first ever nationwide UsahaWIRA roadshow with networking sessions, as well as a new series of stories to connect more businesses with hero entrepreneurs.
With the aim to enable SMEs to learn what takes to digitalise successfully and be future-ready, the initiative is part of the immensely popular UsahaWIRA programme that was launched back in 2021, with a focus on leveraging the SME Digitalisation Grant by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).
“We believe it’s important for businesses to understand that digitalisation doesn’t need to cost a lot, and that they can’t afford to be left behind in digitally. This is not just another programme, but a great opportunity for SMEs to be inspired by the journeys of their fellow entrepreneurs, and lessons learnt. At Maxis, we have helped more than 25,000 SMEs through the SME Digitalisation Grant and we hope to encourage more to come on board so that we can guide them at every step of the way,” said Kevin Lee, Head of SME Segment, Maxis.
