As a gold sponsor, RevTech to provide expertise, event management and logistical support at event exploring the future of automation in the retail industry

DALLAS – March 14, 2018 – RevTech, a Dallas-based seed fund and venture accelerator focused on early-stage retail startups, is proud to announce it is a gold sponsor at Retail Robotics & AI, a first-of-its-kind conference exploring the future of automation in the retail industry.

Retail Robotics & AI is a working conference attended by an invitation-only group of 110 retail executives, retail early adopters and academic researchers to explore use cases, learn from early experiences in retail, and collaborate to define the highest value paths for progress. The event on April 26 in San Francisco, CA is organized by The Retail Analytics Council, Platt Retail Institute and Northwestern University.

“The application of robotics and AI to automation of core retail capabilities, retail analytics, marketing and consumer-facing processes is at an early stage, but developing rapidly,” said Jeff Donaldson, CEO of Intriosity, and RevTech mentor. “While the potential for robotics and AI-driven automation in retail is clear, there is much to learn about where to start, how data must be leveraged, what platforms can be applied, the cost of implementation, and the impact on retail employees among other considerations.”

Donaldson and other mentors will be speaking at the event, including Deborah Weinswig, Managing Director, Fung Global Retail Technology. RevTech is proud to be a sponsor and help organize this exclusive event and asks that you consider attending at the downtown San Francisco remote campus of Northwestern University.
