The summit aims to create opportunities by gathering mobile app platforms for a discussion to help micro-entrepreneurs to become successful business people in the digital economy. Kaodim’s Co-Founder and Group Managing Director Jeffri Cheong was one of the panellists at the SIGN UP Summit 2019 along with:-
- Martin Yu – Associate Director of Shopee Philippines
- Ray Alimurung – CEO of Lazada Philippines
- Dom Danao – CEO of Magpie

During the panel discussion, Jeffri mentioned that Gawin’s vendors have enjoyed tremendous growth in their revenues by as much as five times from using the Gawin platform within a couple of years. He also went on to state that the power of technology and mobile technology to transform businesses and to transform lives is completely immense and envisions a future where one does not need to look for a plumber or an electrician but instead one can rely on their mobile devices to do the searching for them.
He added that the Philippines’ market is just rapidly absorbing the tremendous growth rate and it has the desire to grow so quickly as compared to many other Southeast Asian markets.
The summit had also featured Rodolfo Aseberos, one of Gawin’s vendors who does refrigeration and air-conditioning services. During the summit, Rodolfo went on to explain that before he became a vendor at Gawin he used to seek jobs from different companies for better salary options in hopes of improving his livelihood, but nothing changed. Then one day his neighbour told him about Gawin.
Since that fateful encounter, he has learned how to use Gawin and when he got hold of the availability of the air-conditioning services on Gawin, he proceeded to complete all the requirements and managed to pass and get in. He then went on to state that instead of jumping from jobs here and there.
He finally has a car of his own and it was all because of Gawin. He concluded his testimony by thanking all the staff and management at Gawin for without Gawin his life would not have changed.
