Let’s review the first GroundMAQER Summit!

On June 10th 2021, 901 participants joined our first virtual GroundMAQER Summit to listen to three lively discussions on mobile payment, customer insights and instant delivery – next to the fireside chat with Jumia on digital marketplaces in emerging markets.

Participants came from 71 countries and 16 time zones, with most attendees from India, followed by Mexico and Switzerland. We would like to thank all attendees for joining and engaging during the event!

And of course we are more than grateful to our 27 speakers from leading startups, investors and multinational corporations who ensured lively discussions and valuable insights during the panels.

We are already looking forward to the next GroundMAQER Summit and keep you updated here on a regular basis.
