Transforming bricks-and-mortar shopping is a high-stakes endeavor for retailers given Americans still do over 90% of our shopping in physical stores. In fact, one of the latest trends in retail is the launch of physical stores by online e-commerce companies, including Amazon, Warby Parker, and Birchbox.
Dozens of startups have taken on the challenge of helping retailers bridge the gap between digital and physical commerce through features ranging from shelf-stocking robots, to augmented reality displays, to Wi-Fi based beacons that collect data on shopper behavior.
Using CB Insights data, we identified startups enhancing the in-store experience with digital tools. The startups in our list have racked up partnerships with many big name brands — including Maybelline, Lancome, Kiehl’s, Cabela’s, Foot Locker, Home Depot, Express — and department stores, from Lord & Taylor to Target....
De forma comprensible, la gente se emociona mucho con las nuevas tecnologías, tanto si se trata de una cámara digital más barata que revelar carretes y carretes de fotos como de aplicaciones fotográficas que a su vez convierten la cámara del iPhone en algo más cómodo y fácil que la antigua cámara digital.
Las nuevas tecnologías divierten tanto que puede resultar fácil olvidarse de que lo que impulsa las industrias son nuevos modelos de negocio. Las viejas tecnologías aún pueden ser valiosas siempre que se acompañen de una estrategia inteligente.

A few months ago, Leo and I decided that we really wanted to step up our Medium game to truly understand how the platform worked and how we can provide the best value to our audience there.
Truthfully, I was pretty clueless to begin with.
Logging into the Buffer account was likely my second time on Medium — ever. I was super excited to take on the challenge. Everything was started from scratch, with researching, creating spreadsheets, and experimenting at a rapid rate.
I spent my time studying other brands on Medium and looking for posts that detailed what strategies and tactics worked for getting more traction.
The start of every day for me was Medium, I would import a story from the Buffer blog and edit it before publishing and then spending some time updating all of the tracking spreadsheets with the latest numbers, hoping for an indicator of what was working and what content should be posted tomorrow.
What follows are the 10 biggest experiments and how each one went. I hope it gives you some inspiration and ideas for what you might try next on Medium!...
If you can't explain your startup to a child, you may not have better luck pitching to investors.
If you can't explain your business model to kids, then you're not ready for prime time in front of investors. That's the idea behind Pitch-a-Kid, a new Austin, Texas-based organization that puts kids in the judge's seat as they analyze adult entrepreneurs' pitches and choose the strongest pitch of the bunch.
Kids learn critical thinking and problem-solving skills, while local entrepreneurs get an unfiltered assessment of where their pitch falls short and what parts might be confusing. "Kids at the elementary school age are very honest and are comfortable asking questions about things they don’t understand," says Mike Millard, who started Pitch-A-Kid earlier this year with his daughter Audrey, who’s currently in fourth grade. "For the entrepreneurs it really pushes them to use simple, straightforward, and understandable language."
At Pitch-a-Kid’s second pitch session on July 30 at Austin’s Capital Factory, there were five judges and a judge coordinator ranging in age from fourth to twelfth grade. Millard's daughter acted as an alternate judge and microphone runner.
Stakes weren't that high for the six presenters because there is no cash prize for winning. However, each had only five minutes to present their plan before the judges started asking challenging questions including: How much money do you make? How do customers find you? How old were you when you started your business? and, Why do you do this? Presenters also had to field questions from the audience. Read more: click image or title.
"... Trever White, divisional information officer, noted that his team is regularly on the plant floor, building good relationships so team members can articulate what their challenges are. One challenge they recently identified was the need to build a containment system to more quickly identify and contain a quality issue when it emerges..."

Cristóbal Cobo explora alguna de las redefiniciones que se observan en una sociedad hiper-conectada: reemplazo de la comunicación cara-a-cara por la comunicación digital, el mito del multi-tasking, la permanente sobreinformación, la necesidad de ventilar la vida privada en las redes sociales, entre otras prácticas que nos llevan a repensar de manera profunda lo que significa tanto privacidad como ciudadanía. Luego, Cobo explica que en nuestra era digital el aprendizaje ocurre en todo momento y lugar. Ello demanda diseñar formas alternativas de reconocer y validar conocimientos y habilidades de manera radicalmente diferentes a las que hoy existen.
