The current platform-centric nature of e-commerce presents numerous obstacles in making e-commerce accessible at the population scale.
The masterclass will point out how businesses can harness the power of the open network and unlock the true potential of their business. It will be conducted by Shiresh Joshi, chief business officer of ONDC.
