Women e-Commerce Entrepreneurship Summit

Empowering Women, Empowering Lives

24-25 October, 2020



e-Commerce is now an integral part of our lives. The current size of Bangladesh e-Commerce market is Tk.80 billion with an annual growth rate of approximately 50%. At present, there are around 7,500 e-Commerce companies. These companies fulfill 50,000 orders per day. In addition, there are more than 3 lakh Facebook pages run by small entrepreneurs.
Lion’s share of the online shopping in Bangladesh happens on social media, especially Facebook, a phenomenon popularly known as Facebook Commerce or F-Commerce.
Despite being half the population, the number of women entrepreneurs is very little. Fortunately, e-Commerce opened up new opportunities for our women. They are the majority of online shoppers in Bangladesh. They are also the majority when it comes to e-Commerce entrepreneurship. Half of the 3 lakh Facebook based e-Commerce initiatives are run by women.
Women e-Commerce Entrepreneurship Summit aims to empower the women e-Commerce entrepreneurs. By bring them together, the summit will try to explore the challenges they are facing and how they can work together to overcome those challenges.
