“We are seeing marketplaces soar in growth,” said Joseph Lee, chief revenue officer at VTEX. “So it’s important for businesses to get their digital strategy established sooner rather than later, and aim to leverage the marketplace business model for collaboration with suppliers, customers, and competitors in 2021 and beyond.
