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”.
