MANILA, MAY 20, 2021 – Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, holds the inaugural Shopee University Summit with the theme, “Equipping MSMEs for E-Commerce,” to help budding entrepreneurs capture e-commerce opportunities. This May 27, 2021, industry leaders, successful online sellers, and top brands will share their knowledge and expertise to help online business owners utilize evolving digital tools to grow their businesses online.
Filipinos continue to favor e-commerce platforms, with 86% using mobile shopping apps each month. Therefore, brands, online sellers, and MSMEs need to utilize online platforms to reach more consumers and strengthen their presence in the digital landscape.
As more consumers turn to online platforms for their needs, brands and micro, medium, and small enterprises (MSMEs) should know how to market their products and services in the digital landscape to achieve success. This is why Shopee wants to invite all entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners to join the first virtual Shopee University Summit to understand the basics of e-commerce and how they can maximize the potential of e-commerce and succeed in growing their business online. In addition to in-depth discussions about e-commerce best practices and tips, participants can look forward to amazing prizes at the raffle draw from brands HP, Globe myBusiness, Mcdodo, Asus, Seagate, and Puluz:
