_The Program.

Unlocking the future of retail in DFW

As digital tools continue to evolve the consumer experience, brands and retailers must continually sort through the noise to determine what’s relevant. At RevTech, it’s our job to discover tomorrow’s most impactful retail technologies and to invest in them today.

Join us for a first-of its kind collaboration where we bring together a select, invite-only, group of disruptive retailers, industry experts and venture firms investing in the future of commerce and couple that with a dozen highly curated entrepreneurs in retail tech.

Taking place in downtown Dallas, The REV Summit’s primary goal is to create a retail innovation hub in Texas by fostering collaboration and generating insights on the challenges and growth opportunities in the retail industry. 

Past participants in this program have attracted more than $1B of Venture Capital to date. Their solutions are deployed at scale throughout the eCommerce realm as well as in over 100,000 physical locations.
