About this Event
Targeting international market is no longer optional but mandatory for E-commerce companies seeking rapid growth. According to a recent report by Stripe (in collaboration with VIGA research; January 2019) on online businesses, 6 in 10 of E-commerce enterprises with international sales have already entered new markets within the first year of their existence. This is especially so for Singapore, with 88% share of such businesses selling beyond their home market, one of the highest globally.
Considering this, how is the rapidly developing Fintech industry supporting the E-commerce ecosystem? What changes can we expect in the regional E-commerce landscape given the competitive pressure to drive international growth? What is the bigger picture here while Data plays the catalytic role towards the rapidly changing E-commerce space?
Join us for a discussion with experts who will share with us about the convergence of Fintech, Data and E-commerce in light of the prevalence of internationalization. Furthermore, we get to hear from the speakers’ experience across various industries spanning from new startups to large-scale global companies.
