14:05 PM START-UP DRAGONS' DEN: Hypergrowth On The Frontiers Of eCommerce

eCommerce is tough now. Gone are the days where you could count on double-digit YoY growth. The sector is forecasted to grow at a modest 8% in the UK, according to Forrester, and much of that will go to Amazon. Most other retailers will have no choice to fight for Amazon's table scraps. But as a VC looking at startups every day, we do still see pockets of massive growth even triple-digit YoY. But it’s not coming from traditional retail methods. It’s coming from a new breed of highly engaging ecommerce apps and marketplaces who use data and machine learning to micro-segment audiences and reach them via the right channels with content they actually want to consume. For this panel, we’ll bring you the best of the best – three companies who are operating in the highest growth frontiers of online retail.

This discussion is hosted by venture capitalist Matt Lerner, who spends very day selecting and mentoring the next generation of hyper-growth businesses in his role as MD at 500 startups.
