RETAIL TECH SUMMIT and Retail Tech Innovation Ecosystem Development for San Francisco
The entire retail industry, given its historical and economic importance for America and its GDP, has an enormous legacy infrastructure which means that, contrary to other technology sectors, most retail tech startups will necessarily have to work in some capacity with established industry players just to get started. We feel that this mandatory engagement between retail tech startups and the established retail industry provides a unique opportunity to develop a third innovation paradigm through establishing an ongoing, structured and systematic interaction program of large-organization intra-preneurial with independent entrepreneurial development activities – and possible new investment paradigms by the retail industry to fund promising retail tech startups beyond the standard build or buy decision scenario.
