FROM setting up his first eBay account in 2013 to sell vehicle stickers internationally, Joachim Sebastian has come a long way. In 2017, he founded Everpeaks Consulting Sdn Bhd with the goal of sharing knowledge and e-commerce solutions with digital businesses.
With support from the Malaysian External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade), the company is launching its Kickstarter programme to help Malaysian businesses and companies start their export journey.
“We see a gap in the industry where people with great products and brands in Malaysia can’t export on a global platform,” he said, narrowing the problems down to a lack of skills in navigating online marketplaces.
According to Joachim, some challenges these businesses face are, the lack of guidance to start selling on online platforms, having no suitable products that are e-commerce enabled, textbook methods of training and the lack of support when facing issues.
Plagued with these problems, Malaysian businesses, whether dealers, distributors or brand owners were limited from going global.
