Amazon.com is holding its first summit for small businesses and entrepreneurs participating in the Fulfillment by Amazon service.
The Boost with FBA summit, a two-day event in New York City, has brought together over 1,000 entrepreneurs and small business owners to meet with Amazon leaders face-to-face, and to learn about the tools and services that can help them expand their business on the site.
At the event, sellers had the opportunity to meet with Amazon experts and discuss how they can sharpen business strategies, grow sales, reach new customers and sell in new marketplaces. Participants also heard from seasoned sellers and fellow small business owners about their experiences.
“Small businesses are thriving on Amazon and we’re thrilled to bring these entrepreneurs together to help them take their business to the next level,” said Cynthia Williams, vp/fulfillment by Amazon. “Entrepreneurs on Amazon are expanding their businesses worldwide and increasingly using the logistical expertise of the FBA service to reach new customers in Europe and Asia.”
