Investing in eCommerce

With the global economy weakening in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses across all industries have all been swept with uncertainties. However, one of the few industries that see the potential to rise above the rest is eCommerce. As the world conforms to a new normal, eCommerce has become an indispensable aspect in our modern lives. In the business world, eCommerce currently holds unprecedented investment opportunities that are immensely diverse and all-encompassing.

In our effort to pivot into eCommerce investment, we seek to acquire or invest in eCommerce enablers with clearly identifiable core competencies, proprietary solutions, scalable potential and regional or global market reach.
