Retail Tech Matchup

If you have been paying attention, you will know that the future of retail technology is one of the hottest topics on the entrepreneurial circuit at the moment… and it's easy to see why.

After all, retail is one of the bedrocks of the economy, and shoppers are one of the most discerning bunches of people when it comes to the quality, ease and seamlessness of the service they receive. No surprise then that there are an incredible number of startups, all vying for a piece of the retail pie, with their innovative, experience enhancing, and time saving solutions!

But retail startups still face one of the entrepreneur's most age old and frustrating problems… how to get investment?  You might have the retail world's next big technological innovation in your living room, but without proper investment, the fruits of your labour may well rot on the vine.  

That’s why we were rather pleased to come across a new event, which promises to provide clever retail startups with the opportunity to pitch their ideas / businesses to some of the country's most prolific investors, as well as the movers and shakers of the retail sector.

Retail Tech MatchupRetail Tech Matchup

Created by investor / startup matching service Match Capital and retail technology consultancy firm Validify, Retail Tech Matchup is theUK’s only quarterly investor MatchUp dedicated to retail technology. 

The events not only offer startups the opportunity to pitch their technology to leading venture capitalists and angel investors, but also include expert keynote speakers discussing trends in retail and retail investment.  

Who are they looking for?

There are very few caveats regarding who should and shouldn't apply for this opportunity.  All that the folks at Retail Tech Matchup ask is that your business is retail tech related, you already have a minimum viable product (or some market traction), and that you are looking for investment of at least £500K.

When is the next one?

Applications are now open for participants in the next Matchup event, which will take place in London this September (TBC).  

You can find out more about this opportunity and how you can get involved on their website or follow them on twitter.
