This session will focus on the "what's next for brands and retail concepts" that is now dominating the news cycle. Prior to the COVID pandemic, all anyone could talk about was "The store of the future!" and what that meant for shoppers. We now live in a different world, which still revolves around what our future store and favorite brands might look like, but consumers priorities have changed, and expectations have become higher. The panel will discuss, from a VC point of view, what the next wave will be, beyond today's "so hot right now" digitally native brands. They will explore what future shoppers will expect of these brands and retail concepts, including highly personalized services, more experiential shopping and product curation, and of course, convenience.
