ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

Smart & Savvy Women (SSW) is a fashion industry, export and business development service company; with integrated TV Production services. The company was founded to help minimise the challenges that export-driven Small & Medium Enterprises face in securing financing to start or rapidly grow their fashion export businesses.Trade Finance and other innovative financing instruments play a key role in financing trade. Typically, SMEs need financing to overcome trade-related issues ranging from the difficult, time consuming & expensive process of understanding the export journey, the associated international trade rules and new market customer quality & standards. In essence, limited access to finance, inhibits SME participation in global trade, and is, therefore, experienced as the number one barrier to inclusive trade. At SSW, we promote access to finance as the most fundamental, sustainable, and competitive driver, in helping export-driven SMEs access international markets and integrate in the global fashion value chain.

Our mission

To contribute to the growth and quality of SME fashion export businesses through improved access to finance, increased financial knowledge and improved international business acumen.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSIVITY

We believe fashion is central to the world’s global culture. Connecting South, East and West cultures, we look for creative and fast-forward fashion trends of multi-cultural and ethnic influences. Diversity, variations, and inclusivity in fashion choices across ethnic groups is central to our business. With this exquisite mix of fashion blend, we support fashion entrepreneurs to achieve global standards in style, grace, and elegance.
