Distributed, Disrupted, and Democratic— The Retail Revolution

E-commerce was supposed to transform retailing; it turns out it was the tip of the iceberg. From ubiquitous credit-cards, to online wallets, to the eye-opening simplicity of the Apple Store, to the tablets that are replacing cash registers, retail is undergoing a massive shift. In the back office, software is replacing processes; out front, it’s quickly becoming the default channel. Creators and curators can sell direct-to-consumer, using powerful tools that weren’t available to anyone just a few short years ago.

Along with these changes are fundamental shifts in consumer expectations, who want to buy what, where, and how they want—putting traditional retailers on notice that they can no longer rest on their laurels. The future of retail is distributed, disrupted, and democratic—and it’s the subject of this high-powered session. Join Shopify CPO Harley Finkelstein; Frank & Oak founder Ethan Song, and Holstee founder Fabian Pfortmüeller for this glimpse into the future of retailing.

Growth Hacking is a Stupid Term. We Still Need to Change How We Market

Growth Hacking is a stupid term. You should simply be smart about growing your business. And that means being metric-driven, iterative and experimental. While the concept of Lean Startup has become commonly accepted in product development, marketing is still catching up.

Subversive marketers Greg Isenberg (5by) and Dmitri Leonov (Sanebox) will lead this session, in which you’ll learn which growth metrics to focus on in your business and how to drive them.

Michael Baum – FOUNDER.org

Rebooting the World

Over the past ten years, all net new jobs have come from young, innovative companies. They’re the engines of economic growth powering the twenty-first century. Unfortunately, less than 1% of today’s university graduates go on to start a company.

Imagine what it would mean for the economy—and for society—if we could double, or even triple, the number of student founders in the coming decade. How are we preparing coming generations to start companies that innovate, create jobs, and revitalize economic growth? Join entrepreneur, investor, and FOUNDER.org creator Michael Baum in his mission to inspire students to chase big ideas and become founders of impactful companies.

Ray Reddy – Google

Thriving in Uncertainty

Author Eric Ries defines a startup as «  »A human institution designed to create something new under conditions of extreme uncertainty. » » But running a startup means making hard decisions every day. So how do founders make those tough decisions in a world of high uncertainty? Essentially, you have to learn how to bet. Everything from a hire, to a product launch, to a pricing decision is at best an informed bet.

Pushlife founder and CEO Ray Reddy bet his way through an emerging mobile commerce space and ultimately to an acquisition by Google, and in this session, he’ll discuss the many tough decisions his company had to make—and he continues to make—from its founding to its acquisition by Google, and beyond. He’ll explore topics such as betting on trends before they’re obvious; betting on the right timing for a market; and striking a balance between short-term cash flow and long-term strategic positioning.

Susan Etlinger – Altimeter Group

Collaborative Storytelling

Nearly 100 years ago, the French Surrealists invented a game they called « Le Cadavre Exquis » (« Exquisite Corpse »), in which they would collectively create a story using words and images. Today, customers, partners, friends, competitors and others collectively write and share the stories of organizations with which they interact. In this session, industry analyst Susan Etlinger will share examples of how both startups and established brands use social data to create a most holistic picture of their customer’s needs, wants and aspirations, and how startup entrepreneurs can use this data to build their brands and develop mutually valuable and sustainable relationships.

The Crooked Path to Success

We all know about choosing the road less traveled and taking the fast track. But the path to success is not always the fastest, the straightest or the newest. In fact, sometimes finding success involves a zigzag through life that only when looking back even resembles a path at all. And that is ok.

Join zigzagger and startup veteran Margaret Dawson, who has found business success and personal satisfaction through nontraditional routes. She’ll share what she has found to be the important criteria when making decisions, how to evaluate risk, and how to trust your gut and your logic at the same time, and, importantly, how to decide who to listen to (and who to ignore) when making work and life decisions
