Making a difference with ITC.
Build competitive SMEs
SMEs are our specialty and we offer our expertise and services to help your development initiatives achieve the best possible impact. ITC, as the joint organization of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization, is the only international development institution with a clear mandate to focus on SME development.
The Benchmarking platform allows to run clustered assessments on complete cohorts of SME beneficiaries. This can help you assess the needs of an entire business ecosystem, while simultaneously understanding the needs of individual companies. You can also segment and group beneficiaries depending on scores and needs, and facilitate the delivery of tailored services.
