Stagnant innovation in the retail space commonly happens for at least one of these reasons: lack of business alignment, unclear strategy and metrics, the wrong team, or siloed resources and budgets. In-house innovation incubators are only successful when micro use cases lead to buy-in across the organization. 

We’ve partnered with some of the world’s largest retailers through our teach + do model: embedding closely with teams to ID problems and opportunities, then accelerate scalable solutions.
