The Xend Group of Companies is organizing the 2018 E-Commerce Development Talks (EDTalks) on Feb. 1, 2018 at Penbrothers Makati.

Conceptualized as a series of talks leading to the 2018 E-Commerce Development Awards (EDwards), the EDTalks forms part of the Xend Group’s Market-Ship-Fund Program core market engagement strategy.

“Over the years, we saw that some of the most successful e-commerce ventures were underpinned by three fundamental pillars: marketing, logistics &order fulfillment, and financing,” said JT Solis, Xend’s Vice President for Partnerships and the program’s chief architect.

“Thus, through a meeting of the minds with other key players, we ideated a full-service venture launch and development program that will jointly offer those services to entrepreneurs this 2018, our year of scale. We’re really stepping up our game in the Philippine e-commerce terrain.”

The Market-Ship-Fund Program is co-captained byXend’s A-grade partners: Beebeelee (country’s newest online marketplace entrant), FundKo (leading P2P crowd-lending platform), First Circle (a fin-tech pioneer in trade financing), and Penbrothers (country’s biggest co-working space).
