Woah… has two months just flown by like that? We’ve certainly been heaps busy participating in various tech and trade shows, and also chipping away at our product. Here’s a short summary of some key highlights.


 

Echelon Summit 2017

We made the cut! Top 100 🙂

As one of the top 100 startups being featured, we were given a chance to participate in the “Fight Club” – Echelon’s version of the classic pitch battle.

Raj sportingly donned the unofficial Zeemart apron and spoke about the story of Death by a Thousand Cuts. Sadly, we didn’t make the cut (oops!) but it was all in good fun.

Check out the beautifully crafted slides by William here (PDF, 1.4 MB).

 


 

Specialty & Fine Food Asia 2017

Food, Glorious Food!

London’s premier fine food show makes its inaugural debut in Southeast Asia!

This being our first trade show, we lapped up the opportunity to network and mingle with buyers and suppliers from the region. The feedback and suggestions from seasoned industry players was extremely valuable and will help us to refine our platform to better serve the industry needs.

Going places

It’s been a busy, productive two months for the team. Here are four more events in the past two months where we’ve participated.

Hear it from…

Elson Lee, The Daily Cut

Serving fresh and healthy protein salads from 3 locations around the island, The Daily Cut proves that it’s possible to enjoy a satisfying meal without the guilt. They’ve been using Zeemart to process their orders to their suppliers, and here’s what co-owner Elson Lee had to say about the experience so far…

“Zeemart has helped me with the ordering process for my outlets and allows me to keep track of my purchasing expenses. The web app is user intuitive & the support team is very responsive whenever my team has a question.”
Elson Lee, Co-owner at The Daily Cut and Muchachos
