Retail X Series

Retail X Series is an ecosystem for retail startups. I founded Retail X Series in 2017 as a monthly boot camp for early stage, retail-related startups and founders as they launch their businesses. It has since become an ecosystem for retail and consumer startups in New York and elsewhere. Think of Retail X Series as your “Retail 101,” a platform that’s relevant for preeseed and seed stage startups in the retail tech, ecommerce, DTC, marketplaces consumer brand and consumer tech verticals.  Retail X content is focused on entrepreneurs learning from other founders, retailers, brands and investors.
