Finalists of the fourth scouting of technology solutions for Retail Innovation Tech Alliance

On January 14, the organizers finalized the acceptance of applications for the fourth selection of technological projects within the framework of the Retail Innovation Tech Alliance program, consisting of X5, Beeline, M.Video-Eldorado Group and Hoff.

This time, the focus of the search was on technology projects from Israel, with Axis Innovation as a scouting partner. According to the Future of Retail-Tech Emerging Landscape in Israel 2020 report, there are currently about 460 retail-tech startups in Israel, mainly in the fields of AI, machine learning, computer vision, robotics, IoT and big data. The high level of innovative solutions in the region, as expected, attracted the potential interest of the alliance partners.

In today’s global pandemic, success in the retail and consumer goods markets is achieved by those players who quickly adapt and effectively apply innovative technological solutions, including by engaging third-party developers. For almost a year of its existence, RITA has proven itself as an effective solution not only for finding suitable technologies, but also for mutual exchange of accumulated experience in the field of corporate innovation and cooperation with startups.

A total of 125 companies from Israel took part in the fourth selection.
