business news in context, analysis with attitude

The continuing goal of "The Innovation Conversation" is to explore some facet of the fast-changing, technology-driven retail landscape and how it affects businesses and consumers. It is, we think, fertile territory ... and one that Tom Furphy - a former Amazon executive who led the team that developed Amazon Fresh, and currently CEO and Managing Director of Consumer Equity Partners (CEP), a venture capital and venture development firm in Seattle, WA, that works with many top retailers and manufacturers - is uniquely positioned to address.

Today, Tom and KC offer some predictions for 2023, as they engage in the last Innovation Conversation of 2022.  They range from how technologies will be deployed to how retailers will establish priorities … and include one big personnel move that seems more possible at the moment than it would have six months ago.
