The platform will provide a user-friendly and dynamic virtual space on which business executives, entrepreneurs, retailers and e-commerce and marketing professionals can discuss, share ideas, ask questions and quickly get answers from the expertise of the participants, experts & mentors. Business networking & Collaboration are the main keywords of this initiative.

On March 23rd , 2020, MTL+Ecommerce launched the #COVIDSUPPORT campaign, thus aiming to reunite various companies in a gesture of solidarity and support towards small businesses, start-ups and retailers during the current pandemic.This initiative enabled MTL+Ecommerce to evaluate and understand the needs and worries of entrepreneurs & business professionals concerning digital transformation, financial support, networking and collaboration.

A 360 Experience : a All-in one platform with Chats, webinars, Video conferences, podcasts, mentoring & virtual networking

After studying different alternatives for their collaborative platform, MTL + Ecommerce finally ended up choosing Discord. Despite its 250 million users, Discord is still  underused in the workplace.

What should anyone’s expect? Private Chats, video conferences & webinars, mentoring & virtual networking spaces on the same platform.

MTL+Ecommerce will also be able to offer spaces for share Business experiences, strategies & tactics. Private chat rooms will allow to organize brainstorming sessions and validate business plans & go-to market strategies together with business professionals and experts.
