This weekly series of Retail Tomorrow podcasts features Sterling Hawkins, co-CEO and co-founder of CART-The Center for Advancing Retail & Technology, and MNB "Content Guy" Kevin Coupe teaming up to speculate, prognosticate, and formulate visions of what tomorrow's retail landscape will look like post-coronavirus.
Today, a look at one possible retail future, though the eyes of a 22-year-old woman who helped inspire one AI-powered business solution and now has co-founded another new business with potential implications for how consumers will interact with each other and the stores they patronize.
Our guest: Rushika Raman, co-founder of Havanote, who tells co-hosts Sterling Hawkins and Kevin Coupe about her mobile app startup that allows users to take a highly personal approach to making recommendations - about retailers and restaurants and about products and services, in ways that can have a real impact on the conduct of business. And, she offers a young person's assessment of what works and doesn't work for her in the broader world of retailing.
