London (PRWEB UK) 6 August 2013
Retail innovation experts, Eccomplished and technology investment firms Match Capital and Journey Ventures have joined forces to provide retail technologists with a dedicated platform for attracting investment.
RETAIL 20:20 - the UK’s first investor forum for retail technology and innovation will take place on the 25th September 2013 at the Soho Hotel in London at 3:30 p.m. BST.
The forum will put retail technology innovators on the spot – pitching their businesses to an audience of the UK’s leading technology investors with 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide.
Eccomplished Managing Director, Stephen Millard comments: “Retail is undergoing rapid transformation. There are so many exciting and talented technology companies emerging to solve all manner of retail challenges – from meeting the demands of the multi-channel shopper, to the reinvention of physical retail spaces and their transformation into engaging digital experiences.”
“This is a unique opportunity for innovative retail technology companies to pitch their businesses to a room full of people who can help them realise their ambition. We are still open to applications, so I encourage any interested technology vendors to apply.”
Peter Walsh, Founder of Match Capital, comments: "Match Capital is delighted to partner with Eccomplished for this inaugural investor forum. We have been working very closely this year with Stephen and his team, to showcase the very best of innovative British retail technologies to a diverse, but carefully 'matched' investor audience.
We fully understand the challenges young companies face when raising capital, so this forum will allow us to turbo-charge the capital raising efforts of a very select group of retail technology innovators. Hopefully this will be the first of many such events. We can't wait."
