About Elevate50

E-Commerce Made ACCESSIBLE

Elevate50 is a joint initiative between Digital Cooperation Organization (DCO) and MakanE, which aims to provide 50,000 opportunities in select markets to join the digital revolution by enabling start-ups, entrepreneurs, and SMEs to sell their products online through their own e-commerce platforms.

The idea came to be after DCO had decided to launch an initiative that aims to accelerate the digital transformation of start-ups, entrepreneurs, and SMEs, especially in developing countries, so they chose a partner that can offer them easy accessibility to advanced E-Commerce technologies.


Therefore, Elevate50's concept was created in 2021 after forming a partnership between Digital Cooperation Organization (DCO) and MakanE. This partnership aims to provide 50,000 e-commerce stores to SMEs, start-ups, business owners, and entrepreneurs in multiple sectors.


Elevate50 was created with the sole purpose of developing aspiring communities in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
