Alibaba LiveNOW CSR Programme
Alibaba LiveNOW CSR programme uses technology for good as part of the global eWTP initiatives. The goal of the programme is to help the B40 Group find new opportunities to improve their economic wellbeing and contribute to the nation’s economic development through e-commerce and livestreaming, a core medium in the future of e-commerce.
In collaboration with MODEN Academy and with the support of state governments and organizations of Selangor, Penang, and Sarawak, the two-day in-person programme will incubate over 200 selected KOLs across Malaysia. The Selangor, Penang, and Sarawak government agencies are supporting the initiative by sponsoring the training venues and play a critical role in evaluating the submissions and progress of participants from their state.
“Using technology for good is at the heart of everything we do. Aside from providing access to tools and platforms, Alibaba Group also provides KOLs with an end-to-end ecosystem that supports their training and provides them with opportunities to work with brands. The programme will leverage this expertise and extensive resources to provide Malaysians in need with the skillsets needed for successful e-commerce livestreaming.” Jess Lew, Country Manager, Tmall World Malaysia
“E-commerce livestreaming is emerging as one of the most in-demand skills of the future, and we hope this programme will help them build up their personal branding and positioning through their digital journey in these difficult times. Through the course, participants can learn more about various aspects of livestreaming, including designing key visuals, copywriting and live-streaming skillsby our successful teachers, who are livestreaming KOLs themselves. Interested participants can join our public classes to know more.”Jerry Hang, Founder of MODEN Academy
