Huat with Carousell – January 10th 2023

About the event

Huat with Carousell was an in-person event held on 10th January 2023 aimed at educating merchants on how to navigate digitalisation in a dynamic retail environment and to be successful in a digital space. A variety of speakers from different backgrounds were brought in to touch on various topics – from general e-commerce insights, financial literacy for businesses, and digital marketing strategies, to tips from a successful Carousell merchant.

The program started with an opening speech made by Carousell’s Commercial Director, Johnny Lim, on the importance of having a digital marketplace, how the pandemic caused shifts in digital consumption, and how Carousell stepped up to build a stronger platform to solve the problems that arose from this.

Following Johnny’s speech, the opening of the event was also graced (pun intended) by Ms. Grace Tng from HSBC Life, who spoke about the importance of financial literacy for business owners and how HSBC Life’s solutions would help value add to business owners.

The program started off with Carousell marketplace insights from Johnny, financial literacy tips from Alvin Yeo, digital marketing strategies by guest speaker Nick Sim and a Carousell success story from @kaijootp, winner of our very first Caroupreneur Awards in 2021 for Best SME Digitalisation on what it took him to succeed on the Carousell platform.


After the session, a tea break was called and light refreshments were provided for merchants to network or seek information at the respective booths. Merchants then gathered back once again for the final and most exciting part of the line-up – the lucky draw!

4 lucky winners walked away with a box of abalones and Carousell’s lucky red cat to prepare themselves for a prosperous Chinese New Year.
