The future of retail: A VC perspective on industry trends

We’ve been talking about the retail apocalypse for some time now. New technologies, changing consumer behaviors and innovative digital-first companies are driving massive disruption in the retail industry. While Amazon keeps innovating and setting the new normal, we’re also seeing the rise in digital-first brands who are now starting to take meaningful market share from entrenched incumbents. As these trends continue to accelerate, it’s important to understand where the market is going so you can determine where to invest your money and time. That’s why we gathered this panel of VCs to share their perspective on the future of retail.
