News

You need to stay on top of what’s new and next, and we’re here to help you do just that. We cover everything: fashion tech, wearable tech (and the bigger world of IoE / IoT), the future of commerce, the future of retail, connected stores, and the intersection of content, commerce, & community. We keep our eye on fashion tech startups and explore the most successful partnerships and products.

In fact, we literally wrote the book on the future of commerce (including future-facing business models), and we’re currently writing the book about how to design for connected devices. We know this stuff and we can help you understand it, too. In this world of “On to the next thing!” you have to be able to filter out what’s here to stay so that you can build a solid, sustainable business. You can trust us to keep focused on the new and next.
