Keynote Speaker Lital Marom: Talking platforms with Stelleo Tolda, Mercado livre’s COO


I’m here at Mercado Livre with the COO Stelleo Tolda. Its great to be here a day before your digital summit this year So as one of the largest e-commerce platforms of Latin America THE largest actually I wanted to ask you as you know Building and running a platform based business is very different than building and running a traditional business So what are your key KPIs and metrics for success? So we’re really about interactions between buyers and sellers were about connecting people We talked about democratizing Commerce in mercado libre as a marketplace allowing people who couldn’t buy because they lived far away from the centers in Latin America to have access to products, allowing people who want to start businesses selling online to also do so in the same footing as large retailers. So Mercado Livre is about people, buyers, sellers, transactions, products and ultimately about connecting all of them together through technology. Right, so a big difference than the way traditional businesses is grow and scale It’s really about the interactions. Interactions between the sellers and the buyers, not so much investing in assets, but investing in the interactions. So as the most prominent platform in Latin America, what’s the vision? What’s next? We have a great ambition to democratize financial services as well. When we look at how much money and services are concentrated in a few financial institutions in the region, we see a lot of opportunity using technology to connect people to those services and that’s really our great ambition going forward. So democratizing commerce, and now democratizing money. Great!Thank you so much!
