Notes from Breakfast with the Disruptors, Featuring Retail AI Companies

Executive Summary

  • Coresight Research recently held its inaugural Breakfast with the Disruptors event, where eight startups that are applying artificial intelligence (AI) to solve retailers’ problems pitched their businesses to an estimated 400 guests. The event was hosted by Global Brands Group (GBG) in the Empire State Building in New York City and was sponsored by Celect, GBG and Li & Fung.
  • The startup pitch competition was followed by a Coresight Research presentation on retail trends and what we can learn from companies in Asia. The pitches were judged by executives from Celect, GBG and FirstMark Capital, and GBG generously provided $2,500 in prize money for the winning startup.
  • The judges convened at the end of the pitch session and awarded the prize to Findmine. While the judges deliberated, Coresight Research CEO and Founder Deborah Weinswig gave a presentation on 1Q18 retail trends and what we can learn from Asia.
  • The date of our next Breakfast with the Disruptors event, which will feature several early-stage companies engaged in robotics, will be announced in June.
