25th MFC Annual Conference: Thriving Together

We are delighted to announce the 25th MFC Annual Conference: Thriving Together, Silver Jubilee and invite you to join us from 24–25 May 2023 in Budva, Montenegro. 


Whilst any milestone anniversary offers the chance to reflect on the achievements of the MFC and our members—we want to do more than simply celebrate our success. We want to examine how the experiences we’ve had and the lessons we’ve learnt will equip us to meet the challenges of the next 25 years. On the horizon we see significant opportunities and significant risks: climate change, technological challenges, the uncertain future of work, political conflict and global insecurity. We must meet these trials with bold decisions, innovation and agility. Our Jubilee event will ask us to envision our role in mitigating these challenges and creating sustainable ways of doing business and living. As part of this, we will examine how our changing relationship with the concept of work will affect the microenterprise sector, and how we can balance the immediate needs of small business with the need to future-proof them? And what is the role of social investment and patient capital in helping companies and communities to thrive? 


This 25th anniversary event agenda will bring you lively discussion and debate—as well as ample time and space to celebrate our past and form new partnerships that will help you take your work far into the future. Join your peers for this memorable event, set against the backdrop of the wonderful cultural and sight-seeing opportunities that Budva has to offer.
