Marketplace Investments, Returns, and Valuations

A 54 minute webinar recorded live May 9th, 2022 as part of the Marketplace Best Practices event series.

Marketplaces have shown better returns on investment than most traditional ecommerce or retail businesses - better internal returns (revenue, profit & customer growth) and better corporate valuations. With all ten of the top ten global retailers, nine of the top ten US retailers, and nine of the top ten ecommerce unicorns all operating marketplaces, it is easy to understand the heavy investment and high valuations seen in the space.

Watch as this panel of marketplace and financial experts discusses investments, returns, and valuations within the marketplace sphere from both the operator and seller sides. Returns focus on GMV, profit, cost reduction, nimbleness, data, and other benefits. From the operator side, we discuss marketplaces selling physical goods, services, digital goods, and the investment returns being seen by these organizations.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  1. The disruptive effect of the marketplace model
  2. Where investments are being made in platform businesses
  3. Examples of corporate marketplace investments and returns
  4. The state of marketplace investments, returns, and valuations
