Flipkart has launched a digital platform Shopsy, to enable Indians to start their online businesses without any investment. 
With this launch, Flipkart aims to enable over 25 million online entrepreneurs to benefit through e-commerce by 2023.
The platform’s users will have access to 15 crore products across fashion, beauty, mobiles, home, to name a few.
Users are required to register on the Shopsy app using their phone numbers, whereas entrepreneurs can set up their business, as long as they have access to a network of people. 
Prakash Sikaria, senior vice president - growth and monetisation, Flipkart, said, “Over the last many years, Flipkart has been committed to contributing towards creating direct and indirect employment opportunities across the country. Shopsy is launched to further that vision and provide additional earning opportunities for millions of enterprising Indians. Now, anyone from anywhere can start their online business with zero investment. In addition, we are opening up Flipkart's years of e-commerce expertise for Indian entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs now will utilise Flipkart's catalog, established delivery networks, and infrastructure to bring reliability and speed. These benefits will help them enhance the end consumers' experience, which in turn help them grow their business."
