New Construction Law: Main Changes & Challenges

Opportunities for the Digital Transformation of SMEs

Wednesday, Mar 01, 2023 From 09:00 to 11:00

Jurkovičova Tepláreň, Bottova 1, Bratislava

Business Breakfast

Small and Medium Enterprises play a crucial role in the Slovak economy, making up 99,9% of all business subjects and around 50% of GDP. Increasing levels of digitalization of SMEs is a necessary step for increasing the competitiveness of Slovakia. Recent challenges such as disruptions of global supply chains, rising energy prices, and inflation have lowered the number of enterprises currently undergoing digital transformation to 23% according to a recent survey by Trexima and Industry4UM.
To keep competitiveness in the local and global markets, SMEs need a clear understanding of their current digital capabilities and their needs to successfully navigate the journey of the digital transition.
At this event, we will highlight and introduce best practices of customized mentoring and advisory programs aimed at integrating digital technologies for SMEs and answer how we could collectively support SMEs in Europe with their digitalization journey.
We will discuss and focus on the following questions:
  • What are the most common barriers SMEs face in their efforts or motivation to introduce digital technologies and innovations?
  • What measures and programs are available to SMEs to kickstart their digital transformation journey? (Private, Public, or Private-Public partnerships)
  • How should SMEs choose technologies and tools most beneficial for their digital transformation?
  • Why should SMEs invest in developing digital skills of their employees and what opportunities are available?


  • Katarína Kakalíková, Mastercard 
  • Pavel Přikryl, OPERO – projekt Do Toho! 
  • Michal Kardoš, SAPIE, Liga za digitálny rast
