Our Story

As active industry practitioners and lifelong students of Retail, we have witnessed several disruptions and transformation waves in Retail caused by global events, and most recently the COVID-19 pandemic. We strongly believe in Retail industry’s resiliency and the ability of progressive and visionary retailers to emerge much stronger out of the crisis.

  We also believe in the unique value proposition of Retail-Tech start-up ecosystem in enabling disruptive innovation. Yet many of these start-ups struggle to get the much-needed global scale. Our research and industry experience pointed to the current model of growth accelerators & advisors as one of the inhibitors for the limited start-up scaling.

Most accelerators operate as generalists focusing on technology rather than industry verticals and use a cookie-cutter approach much focused on driving cohort sign-ups and getting customers & investors to show up at the pitch events. This traditional model of accelerator engagements with start-ups adds limited value and cause a lot of heart burn among entrepreneurs as they struggle to scale globally & sustainably. To win in the new world, start-ups need deep industry & market expertise, strong customer & influencer network, and hands-on engagement that goes beyond pitch decks, co-working spaces and cohorts.

  dotkonnekt is built-to-purpose to enable global scaling in a sustainable manner, one progressive start-up at a time. Using our full-stack global scaler & innovation platform, Retail-Tech start-ups scale globally with business value chain aligned solutions. Retailers deliver meaningful open innovation to their business. Venture partners and investors better curate their retail investment portfolios with higher returns.  

We believe in collaborative disruption and collective enrichment. We win when every stakeholder in our ecosystem wins. Our vision is to reimagine Retail for the next decade and we invite you to come and join us in this exciting adventure.
