SACE, a leading Italian export credit agency, interviewed C2FO Founder and CEO Sandy Kemper for its annual Rapporto Export event on Sept. 14. 

Titled “Back to the Future: Anatomy of a Post-Pandemic Recovery,” the event explored the strong rebound of the global economy and what that means for growth in various Italian markets. 

In June, C2FO partnered with SACE to create easy access to low-cost capital by offering innovative financing solutions for Italian SMEs and large international companies. 

SACE and C2FO share the same mission: to help small and mid-sized enterprises thrive and support economic development in the process. 

Sandy spoke alongside Daniele Franco, the Italian minister of economy and finance, Francesco Starace, CEO of Enel, Bianca Maia Farina, president of Poste Italiane and ANIA, and many more. 

“Small and mid-sized businesses comprise 90% of the world’s business population and generate 55% of the world’s GDP,” Sandy said. “And yet, small businesses fail more frequently than their large cohorts.”
