B20 and C2FO Collaborate on Solutions for Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Businesses

PR News Wire | September 01, 2023

C2FO, the world's on-demand working capital platform, is proud to announce its collaboration with the Business 20 (B20) and inclusion in a major policy paper published at the 2023 B20 meeting in New Delhi, India. The B20 is the official dialogue forum between the global business community and the G20, the key forum for intergovernmental leaders around the globe. The paper addresses the challenges micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) face in accessing working capital and provides global leaders with actionable recommendations for achieving sustainability targets with inclusive long-term employment and economic growth. This initiative was led by the vice-chair of the Business at OECD (BIAC) Finance Committee, Gianluca Riccio, CFA, with guidance from other leaders across the private and public sectors globally. This is the second consecutive year that a major policy paper from the B20 highlights C2FO's platform as a critical solution for the biggest challenges faced by MSMEs and the global economy. "The importance of MSMEs to the global economy cannot be overstated, and it's incredibly important to see both the challenges and solutions being addressed in this global forum," said Alexander "Sandy" Kemper, C2FO's founder and CEO. "We work hand in hand with MSMEs, and increasingly with governments, around the world every day to address the need for working capital to drive economic growth and prosperity, and we've seen the power of solutions, like ours, that work. As the paper's recommendations are incorporated, the global economy will benefit." The paper highlights several global studies that show the pivotal role working capital plays in fostering economic growth and job creation. A recent study from the Bank of Italy suggests that increasing working capital could lead to a boost of 0.5% to 0.7% in economic growth. Similarly, a 2022 McKinsey Global Institute study commissioned by C2FO found that Mexico could experience a 1.1% growth in its gross domestic product (GDP) by implementing a working capital platform on a national scale. According to an International Finance Corporation study, $1 million in funding to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is connected to the creation of 16.3 permanent jobs on average. C2FO's impact on MSMEs goes far beyond research, however. The tangible impact of working capital programs is evident through the $300 billion in funding C2FO has provided to businesses worldwide since its founding, a milestone it achieved in July 2023. In the past three years, more than $25 billion of that low-cost working capital went to nearly 30,000 businesses in 41 countries categorized by the United Nations as "economies in transition." "We are dedicated to solving the challenges MSMEs face in every country," said C2FO's head of India, Basant Kaur. "As a key demonstration of our National Platforms for Working Capital initiative, last year C2FO received approval from the Reserve Bank of India to become an official trade receivables discounting system (TReDS). Our customers and the nearly 200,000 suppliers on our platform in India know that when they partner with C2FO, they are working with a recognized global leader dedicated to creating opportunity for businesses." In addition to C2FO's work with the B20, the company is an active member of the SME Finance Forum. As a member of this global network, C2FO engages in dialogue about policy changes to promote SME financing worldwide. Kemper will speak on Sept. 12 during the organization's premier conference in Mumbai, India, focusing on the role of digital platforms in SME financing. C2FO remains committed to ensuring every business has access to the capital it needs to thrive.

"Offering our small business customers a line of products that fits their needs, accompanied by well-rounded, knowledgeable bankers and a library of small business resources, are enhancements we know business owners across the Southeast will benefit from," says Richard Murray, SouthState president. "Small business owners make local economies thrive, and SouthState is committed to supporting both." Matt Vegter was promoted to director of small business banking to grow and serve SouthState's small business sector. A banker for 15 years, Vegter helped to develop a small business loan program, Business Lending Express, which streamlined and simplified the underwriting process for small business loans. This program created efficiencies for both the bank and small business clients by decreasing loan origination costs and reducing the time to decision. Vegter holds a bachelor's degree in finance from Southeastern University and a master's degree in business administration from Stetson University. He's a graduate of the Florida School of Banking as well as the Stonier Graduate School of Banking at the University of Philadelphia. Vegter has built a team of experienced small business bankers, pulling from capable bankers at SouthState and other financial institutions. Members of the team include the following: Jack Baker brings 16 years of banking experience to the small business banking team.

Krystle Mall moves into the small business banking role after 10 years as a SouthState branch manager, most recently in Gastonia, North Carolina after relocating from the Myrtle Beach/Conway area of South Carolina, where she began her banking career with SouthState in 2004. Ross Marley continues to serve Charleston, South Carolina, most recently as a business banker before joining the small business team. A member of SouthState since 2015, he's also worked as a financial services representative and lead credit analyst. Mike Marshall comes to SouthState from Intercoastal Financial Group in Fort Pierce, Florida, where he served as a finance broker since 2018, cultivating relationships with dealers, brokers and lenders. Other past career roles include director of retail sales, market sales manager and general manager at Drivetime LLC. Ray Merritt joined SouthState as a financial services representative in 2011, holding roles of increasing responsibility ever since. Most recently, Merritt served as the branch manager in Conway, where his branch led the Grand Strand market in goals for two consecutive years. Brian Moon also moves from the branch manager role in Tucker, Georgia, to the small business banking team. He has almost 20 years of banking experience and knowledge from working at Bank of America, Wells Fargo, SunTrust and SouthState. Adam Odom joins the small business team after seven years as a branch manager for SouthState in Columbia, South Carolina. He began his career in banking in 2001, previously working at Wells Fargo, SunTrust and BB&T. Lauren Thompson spent the last eight years serving SouthState's Richmond market as a branch manager before moving to small business banking. She gained additional experience as a personal banker for First Enterprise Bank and retail banker with Woodforest National Bank.
