The rise of e-commerce has sparked signifi cant efforts
to make Singapore a cashless society. With this in mind,
the National Pushcart Challenge, organised by RP’s
Diploma in Social Enterprise Management, was renamed
the Digital Business Challenge.
Held on 27 August 2017, the competition heavily
featured digital payment platforms in line with the
theme “Social Entrepreneurship in the Digital Age”.
Participating vendors included Carousell, DBS PayLah!,
and ezbuy, which enabled patrons to pay at the
student-run businesses via digital means.
