Get Digital Store is the digital commerce platform that empowers microentrepreneurs with technology in order to be competitive in the future economy. Get builds the digital economy infrastructure to bring up the livelihood of people from the base of the pyramid through economic inclusion.

Myanmar’s biggest network of convenience stores, with their 24-hr opening schedule and over 300 stores across the country, G&G (Grab & Go) is working together with Get, which now has over 30 digital products available on the platform. The collaboration between G&G and Get is the beginning of the digital transformation in Myanmar_ taking the first important step of implementing digital economy.
U Nyein Chan Soe Win, the CEO and co-founder of Get, said “Physical businesses and digital commerce are complementary. Today’s business trend leads to something of what we call omni channel, where former offline-only businesses are reaching out to online marketplace and online-only businesses are extending their operation territory over the physical locations as well. As part of the digital transformation, Get, collaborating with G&G, brings faster time to market technology to connect these online and offline businesses.”
Therefore, the vision of this collaboration between physical convenience store like G&G and the digital products platform like Get is to make customer experience seamless through the Smart Store.
