Track 1: Disruptive Startups and Pioneering Brands

Session B: Startups Bringing Offline Discount Models to the Online World

Discount models are widespread in the traditional retail world, but some of the most popular offline discount models like wholesale clubs and dollar stores are still making the shift online and haven't capitalized on consumers' migration to mobile. In this session, we'll hear from startups that specialize in merging core discount models with traditional and mobile ecommerce. Founders of these startups will discuss how they're getting online buyers to take advantage of the same low-cost shopping options they've come to embrace in physical stores.
