Retailers Looking for Tech Startups to Heighten Consumers’ Experiences

As retailers such as Bloomingdales, J. Crew, and Macy’s continue to lose out on sales, particularly on mobile e-commerce platforms, we are seeing an unprecedented move towards not only internal tech-friendly product development, but also partnerships with outside tech startups to re-imagine its consumers’ experience.

In the age of self-branding, consumers are increasingly looking to customize their shopping experience beyond traditional measures such as size and clothing type. For example, startups are developing personalized style “genomes” for companies to use to offer more curated sartorial options to consumers utilizing e-commerce platforms.

What does this mean for fashion tech startups?

It is apparent that large retailers are looking to partner with/acquire fashion technology startups that can help their ailing profits. Whether you work in product development, data analytics, or software, there is ample opportunity for your innovation to have an impact in the fashion industry. However, as with any market gap, copycats will inevitably begin to flood the market.
