JumpStart Foundry: May 6th

Overview

 

2020 was certainly a year that called for innovation and new thinking. But due to travel limitations, many companies struggled to connect with the early-stage startup companies that are most likely to bring real innovation to retail. 

In response to the disruption of 2020, GMDC|Retail Tomorrow is launching the Startup Mic-Drop series, a 2021 program that will allow our members and industry participants to easily discover the most innovative startups. 

What to Expect

  • A one-hour session
  • Five 5-minute pitches from innovative product startups
  • A panel of five industry executives serving as judges and offering real-time feedback to the founders and innovators will select a winner who will participate in the Startup Showdown at the end of the year
  • The overall champion of the Showdown will be awarded a $10,000 prize and the winning product concept will receive a test distribution pilot on Boxed.com
  • All registered viewers of the events will have the opportunity to have further one-on-one discussions with any startup of interest
