For many Singaporeans, the phrase, “add to cart, now!” stirs up the visuals of hunky Korean actor Lee Min-ho. If such viral campaigns inspire you to flaunt your creative side, you’ll want to get in on LazPitch, Lazada’s first-ever case competition.

These teams will get to pitch their ideas in front of a panel of judges, a la Shark Tank. The judges will then vote for their favourite ideas and five teams will get to move on to the final round. 

If you’ve made it this far, congratulations, because the top five teams will get to learn topics such as campaign planning, live streaming, and social and user engagement from Lazada experts themselves.
