Retail Hackathon, Powered by Shoptology:
Unlock Disruptive Thinking to Drive Path to Purchase Innovation
The first-ever i3 Retail Hackathon Powered by Shoptology will help participants develop a structured method of enabling disruptive thinking to help solve the many challenges facing the retail industry.
Using real-world challenges posed by a panel of retailer partners, participants in the Retail Hackathon will work in cross-functional teams representing various disciplines to explore innovative, omnichannel solutions for common issues facing brands and retailers.
Guided by facilitators from Shoptology, teams will develop solutions to the presented challenges, with creative professionals on hand to bring their ideas to life. They’ll then present their ideas to panels of both consumers and tech industry experts to gain real-time feedback. The final programs will be judged based on innovation, creativity and potential value, as well as the quality of the presentation. The winning teams will be recognized through various EnsembleIQ media assets, including magazines, websites and social media.
This unprecedented learning experience will help participants unlock the “disruptor within” by working alongside peers and industry experts to see how they work, think and innovate and collaboratively find unique answers to common industry problems.
