Who We Are
Aapi Chamber of Ecommerce (ACE) is a first-of-its-kind platform offering dozens of services to help women thrive in today’s digital economy.
In Urdu, the word “Aapi’” is used to address women with respect, and it’s often used to refer to one’s elder sister. This sentiment is at the heart of what we do; our vision is to become the go-to platform to help women achieve full economic participation and financial independence.
Why is this important? We’re a global company, and in many areas of the world, women aren’t given equal opportunity to participate in the eCommerce space. The ability to earn an income from the comfort and safety of home is a luxury that many women currently don’t have access to.
There are many reasons for this inequity, but far too few resources helping to lift women up in the global economy. We believe that when women are able to exchange their unique gifts as goods and services online, we’re all better off. So, we set off to change the status quo.
What We Offer
Our mission at ACE is to become a leader in economic empowerment for women worldwide. Our services are designed to provide the support that is often freely available for men as they prepare to launch businesses, but is historically inaccessible to women.
Here are the benefits that our services provide to the women we serve:
- Ability to learn new skills or enhance existing capabilities
- Access to experts for essential legal and business advice and resources
- Ability to launch an eCommerce business selling goods or services
- Connections with other skilled and professional females
- Networking with existing and aspiring eCommerce entrepreneurs across the globe
