“There's always opportunity for innovation. The technological transformation that every industry has been experiencing, particularly in the last 10 years, has really left no stone unturned and that's particularly true for grocery."
Grocery faces unprecedented pressure to accelerate its digital transformation as consumers leapfrog traditional adoption curves to satisfy unmet needs. Everything from e-Commerce, to digital merchandizing and supply chain optimization; to check-out free stores, courier services and facial recognition payments are scaling and fast.
Check out the best practices in innovation discussed by our Founder & CEO, Fred Schonenberg, including everything from autonomous inventory tracking leveraging robotics, AI and machine learning; to the return of the milk run (subscription-based) model.
Then hear from top VCs at Silverton Partners and Branch Venture Group plus the Founders of Vori and Clerk. Our guests discuss the need for omni-channel strategies; as well as the expectation of hybrid shopping experiences for customers and employees: bringing digital in-store and pushing out high-touch personalized digital assistance on-line.
Learn which trends industry leaders see as most impactful and which tech innovations are launching in response to them.
