“The onslaught of digitisation has left them gaping,” says Sameer Vakil, Co-Founder, CEO, GlobalLinker.

GlobalLinker addresses this shortfall in areas such as payment issues, scaling, logistics, networking powered by algorithm-based match-making, Vakil told BusinessLine. GlobalLinker enabled SMEs connect with each other.
