Evermos Named the 3rd NIKKEI ASIA AWARD Winner

Nikkei Inc. announced that the Indonesian e-commerce platform, Evermos, had been named the winner of the third NIKKEI ASIA AWARD.

TOKYO, JAPAN, December 25, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nikkei Inc., Japan’s largest media group and publisher, announced that the Indonesian e-commerce platform, Evermos (CEO: Ghufron Mustaqim), had been named the winner of the third NIKKEI ASIA AWARD. Founded in 2018, Evermos provides online shopping services specifically to Muslims, who make up nearly 90% of Indonesia’s population. Nikkei will present a prize of 5 million yen and a trophy to Evermos, and it will invite the founder to speak at Nikkei Forum 29th Future of Asia, which is scheduled to be held in May 2024.

After careful consideration of diverse viewpoints from various parts of Asia, the candidates for the most recent NIKKEI ASIA AWARD were winnowed down to a single torchbearer of innovation: Evermos. The company has developed an e-commerce platform in Indonesia that supports the economic independence of women by creating jobs for those females in rural areas who lack employment opportunities. One example is by encouraging them to become business owners selling general merchandise and food products.

The four co-founders have shared an awareness of need to “change a situation in which logistics prevent small businesses from growing” since the company’s inauguration. Just as technology has changed the way small and medium-sized businesses and individuals conduct commerce in the U.S., they want to encourage change in their home country.
