Melissa & Lucas answer these questions:
1) Melissa - your career spans quite a bit of experience in market research and competitive analysis at Mintel where you spent 10 years. Then you joined InContext Solutions as an account executive to grow to being the Chief operating officer. Take us through your career journey from Mintel to InContext Solutions. What prompted you to come here to InContext Solutions? Why retail tech leadership?
2) I’d love to go through a brief history of InContext. Where did the company start, what prompted interest in this space? What’s the evolution over time?
3) Tell us about InContext’s virtual commerce offering. What makes InContext uniquely positioned to be the leading provider of virtual commerce solutions?
4) So, let’s talk about the metaverse. How do you define the metaverse, and are you a metaverse company?
5) There’s a lot of hype around the metaverse, some say it won’t last. Let’s talk about what some are the naysayers saying and break that down a bit.
6) You talk about InContext being a building block to the metaverse. Virtual commerce is one way. What other building blocks should we be thinking about?
7) Historically, InContext’s bread and butter has been in shopper insights and visualizing retail stores. How does this tie into what you’re doing with virtual commerce?
