“We’re in the midst of a profound structural shift from physical to digital retail…It’s happening faster then I could have ever imagined.” Jeff Jordan, Partner at Andreessen Horowitz.
E-commerce is booming. Consumers are demanding lower prices, convenience, and a more personalized shopping experience. All of which are being addressed by technology enabled brands. While media is still the leading e-commerce category, electronics and apparel are on the rise. In 2013 13% of all clothing sales were made online. That’s almost $30B a year! What does this mean for physical retail? How will shopping evolve over the next decade? What developments in technology will propel brands forward?
