Companies in the Mobile Shopping & Commerce category of iMedia's Next Wave Startup Challenge & Showcase include technology apps that serve as a bridge between digital and brick & mortar, POS, in-store mobile shopping applications & QR codes, etc.
Earlier this year, iMedia solicited submissions and opened crowd-sourced voting via the iMediaConnection online community. Innovation experts and advisors from top-tier brands, agency incubators, and the venture community were selected to help judge and guide this year's event.
The challenge culminates in presenting finalists showcasing their technologies at the iMedia Breakthrough Summit. Finalists will be given a consistent challenge and five minutes to pitch their innovative solutions to the audience. Onsite judging will follow, and ultimately, Breakthrough attendees will weigh in via live vote to determine the true industry game-changers.
