What is this “MSME Day” everyone’s talking about? Why haven’t we heard about this before? This is a fairly new event introduced by the United Nations in 2017. It arrives with the power to celebrate your small business – the power to celebrate you!
Think of it like celebrating a birthday or an anniversary. The sheer sustainability and potential for growth in small businesses is not just worth acknowledging but also celebrating.
“These enterprises can, in fact, become the engines that sustain growth for long-term development in developing countries,” a representative of the UN said at the announcement.
But, what do Indian small businesses really want?
If you had a friend’s birthday coming up, wouldn’t you get your friend a gift they really want? This MSME Day, we want to address a question not many people ask.
What do Indian small businesses really want? Instamojo helps more than 400,000 businesses power their business, so we went about asking what they really wanted for their business. There was a general underlying sentiment we found:
- MSMEs want to get discovered
- They want to grow and be a part of a network where they belong.
- These businesses also want to have easy access to money, technology and, resources.
The findings make sense to us. We, at Instamojo, want to build a platform for MSMEs that not only give them what they want but also make sure they get what they need.
Making Instamojo Apps all FREE!
Over the years, we built an app store for all the businesses that use us. We carefully engineered and curated apps that can complement your business model. Here is a list of the most popular apps on our app store:

- Payment Retry: Send automated emails to your buyers to finish an incomplete or failed transaction. This app can help you capture drop-offs and convert them into sales!

For a long time, some apps in our app store have been paid apps. We couldn’t find a better occasion to make the entire App store free for our users!
We understand these apps are needs and not just wants and we want to create an ecosystem where you can nurture your business and grow without having to worry about petty payments.
