As ecommerce ventures grow rapidly, driven by massive advertising and deep discounts, one of the major area of concerns has been the inability of these companies to break even. But investors are still willing to bet on the viability of ecommerce businesses in the longer run. So, will it be wrong to assume that such ventures are overvalued?
Taking note of the rising losses, leading ecommerce firms are making an effort to diversify operations into financial services, payments and logistics through forward and backward integration or acquisitions. How effective these initiatives can be in limiting losses and helping these firms post a profit?
This and many other interesting topics and aspects of ecommerce in India will be discussed at India’s biggest summit on ecommerce, the Techcircle India Ecommerce Summit. The summit, to be held on February 10-11 at The Westin Gurgaon, will see participation from more than 350 ecommerce professionals, experts, experienced and budding entrepreneurs, as well as an attractive line-up of angel, VC and PE investors active in the ecommerce ecosystem.
