Why we're is so excited for the launch of the Startup Zone

Every company undergoing a digital transformation must be aware of the latest thinking, emerging technology and innovative vendors that can help run SSOs better, faster, cheaper, and smarter. Similarly, business services start-ups must be equipped with the knowledge and tools to effectively work with enterprises. While the opportunities are endless, the struggle is real. We're here to help. For the past 20+ years, SSOW has supported the interests of shared services leaders and supporting partners globally, helping the community scale their centers, create value and drive business transformation. We are thrilled to leverage our community and build this space for innovation to happen.
