Networking platforms

The SME Association of Zimbabwe provides several networking platforms to enable entrepreneurs to form partnerships as well as share ideas on how to grow your business. Networking is a critical component for growing markets, particularly if one can form partnerships with other enterprises, large and small, that are along the same value chain. Some of the available programs are:

Value Chain Groups

Our membership is classified according to value chain groups. This helps to ensure that people who are likely to do business with each other are grouped together. Each value chain group meets once every five weeks at our offices. To get the calendar of meetings, you can send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.

They are also listed on this page (click).

The following are the value chain groups that we have:

Business Directory & Online Shop

We encourage value chain linkages amongst SMEs themselves, by providing detailed information on what each SME is doing in our business directory and online shop. Our members are thus easily able to identify other SMEs within their value chains (e.g. chicken farmers can pick out restaurants, retailers and caterers).
