Event description
SEA's digital economy is expected to hit $240 billion by 2025, exceeding estimates by 20%. What is the future e-commerce landscape like?

About this Event

With the explosion of the mobile internet, Southeast Asia (SEA) is now the fastest growing internet market in the world. The exponential growth and abundance of business opportunities have set e-commerce to be one of the major industries in the region. Homegrown companies (such as Zalora, Shopee and Qoo10) have enjoyed massive success and are now internationally-recognised names.

While such giants are dominant in the field, is there still room for new ventures to penetrate the market and distinguish themselves in the competitive landscape? How can they leverage the power of data and social commerce to achieve success? What do investors look for in e-commerce startups before investing?

In collaboration with Rocket Internet, this session will tap on the E-commerce landscape and its business opportunities. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from our speakers who are prominent leaders in the relevant sectors!
