Countdown to Shoptalk: Startup Pitch Competition Participant Profile—SHOP

Executive Summary

The Coresight Research team will be attending and participating in the Shoptalk 2018 conference in Las Vegas March 18–21. Billed as the world’s largest conference devoted to retail and e-commerce innovation, Shoptalk will cover “the rapid evolution of how consumers discover, shop and buy—from new technologies and business models to the latest trends in consumer behaviors, preferences and expectations.”

  • On March 18, Coresight Research CEO and Founder Deborah Weinswig will emcee a startup competition between 15 innovative, early-stage companies at Shoptalk. Two winners will be announced, one chosen by a panel of judges and one by audience vote, and each will be awarded $25,000. Each day leading up to Shoptalk, Coresight Research will publish an overview of one of the participating startups’ technology solutions.
  • SHOP provides a block chain-based e-commerce marketplace that connects brands and consumers and is designed to decentralize control of consumer data. Consumers purchase the SHOP Token to transact on the platform; the token enables them to control who sees their data and how much of it is shared. Consumers who choose to share their personal data with brands receive discounts and personalized services in exchange. SHOP seeks to enable a global shopping network that respects data ownership and rewards participants for providing companies with access to their personal data.
  • On March 20, Weinswig will participate in “Overview of Retail and E commerce Innovation in China,” a session that will cover technology and business model advancements in areas such as checkout, payments, delivery, logistics, the Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics.
