Enabling entrepreneurs on E-commerce Day

The first-ever E-commerce Day, an initiative to support and help grow South Africa’s online retail sector, took place on 10 March 2021. Xneelo was there to support these entrepreneurs with insightful help and advice. We also launched our first free e-book.

E-commerce Day 2021

Ecommerce.co.za was launched last year with the vision of growing the e-commerce industry in South Africa. Together with various partners like uAfrica, DHL, PayFast, bidorbuy, E-commerce Day provided entrepreneurs with access to e-commerce related podcasts, webinars, helpful resources and funding opportunities. Xneelo was one of 50 industry partners to participate.

Through the useful resources provided, entrepreneurs are enabled to start or expand their online businesses. Over 3000 participants from all over the country took part in the inaugural E-commerce Day. 

In 2020, South Africans realised the power of e-commerce and this trend to move online has only been fast-tracked. Not everyone is prepared for this shift, which is why initiatives like E-commerce Day are so important: enabling up-and-coming entrepreneurs with the necessary support networks. 

E-commerce Day was followed with significant media exposure and was reported on by BizCommunity, Daily Maverick, NSBC, Moneyweb, Ventureburn and ITWeb, amongst others.
