If you are a technology start up and are looking for investment then we here at Startacus believe Retail 20:20 could be right up your street.
Digital innovation and investment hub Haatch and retail technology accelerator Eccomplished have joined forces for the second investment forum for retail technology and innovation.
So...I know by now you are thinking who, what, where, when and how?
Well following the success of last year’s inaugural event, Retail 20:20 will take place on the 13th May 2014 at the Soho Hotel in London. It is an investor forum dedicated to the next generation of retail tech.
As the pace of retail change quickens, so does the emergence of technology innovators set to reshape retail forever. Behind the most successful are smart investors – Angels and Venture Capitalists with active retail tech interests, experience and connections.
You retail technology startups will be given 10 minutes to pitch for seed capital from a room of retail savvy investors. Each company will be looking for early stage funding to re-invent retail.
This event could be the springboard your startup needs to get to where you want to be going – so why not have a go? Retail 20:20 is still open to applications from those retail technology companies looking for early stage or growth funding. Any companies wishing to pitch or investors who wish to attend the event can register on the following link .
This event aims to help you start up by:
Understanding your market and customer needs
Understanding your competitors
Ensuring retailers would buy the product you are developing
Defining most attractive market segments
Developing a scalable business model
So if you think you have an idea ‘in the bag’ – why not ‘check out’ the Retail 20:20 website .
