Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, partners with one of the leading global health brands, Abbott, and Mamacademy, a mom learning community, to conduct a special Mother’s Day edition of Shopee University. This initiative aims to empower and encourage more Filipino moms to become successful entrepreneurs, by educating them on how to establish their own online businesses, and providing them tips on how to strike a balance between their career and family.
The exclusive Shopee University session will be held on 19 May at Shopee’s headquarters in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. During the session, Shopee and Mamacademy will educate aspiring mom entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their businesses on Shopee, as well as provide them with a deeper understanding of the online commerce landscape through sharing insights on consumers’ online browsing and purchase behavior. Additionally, Abbott will also be sharing tips on how mom entrepreneurs can find a balance between having a fulfilling career and keeping their family as a priority.
“Mother’s Day is a very special event in the Philippines; a country where family traditionally holds high value and importance. Hence, we wanted to use this occasion as an opportunity to celebrate and empower moms in the Philippines, by providing them a platform to get together and learn more about how they can carve out a career in e-commerce, while balancing time spent with their families,” said Terence Pang, Chief Operating Officer, Shopee.
“Abbott has always been committed to the empowerment of working mothers from all across the world. We are very happy to partner Shopee for this meaningful event, and to be able to share our knowledge and insights to mom entrepreneurs, and help them make a difference to both their own and their families’ lives,” said Christian Domingo, E-commerce Head, Abbott Philippines.
