New Member: Ontology joins the SME Finance Forum to promote access to finance for MSMEs

Washington D.C., January 28th, 2022- Ontology joins the SME Finance Forum as the newest member of our global membership network. Our members are SME financing experts from 80+ countries who share the common goal of expanding access to finance to small businesses worldwide through knowledge exchange and innovation.

“When we started in 2012, we were in an exploratory phase for the first few years. Since 2016, we’ve been implementing our mission to build a global membership to support better SME financing, and since then, we’ve established a network with over 230 active member institutions, which operate in over 190 countries sharing the common purpose of helping under-served enterprises. We are delighted to welcome Ontology to further grow our mission.” said Matthew Gamser, CEO of the SME Finance Forum.

Ontology is about bringing trust, privacy, and security to Web3 through providing decentralized identity (DID) and data solutions. With a focus on delivering the tools, and building the infrastructure, to ensure both individuals and enterprises enjoy a frictionless, self-sovereign, and secure gateway into Web3, Ontology continually demonstrates that users, and their privacy, are a priority for the next iteration of the Internet.  

"By joining the SME Finance Forum, we hope to build Ontology’s brand awareness as well as seeking possible collaboration opportunities,” said Jun Li of Ontology. “At Ontology, we work hard to maintain a competitive edge, whilst being excited by the opportunity to work together for the benefit of the ecosystem, and for the positive experience of the user. By offering safe and secure solutions for decentralized identity, Ontology helps to solve the business challenge of keeping users’ data secure, and offers peace of mind to users by allowing them to control their own data.”
