Hundreds of people came out in Minneapolis on Tuesday to see the culmination of first year efforts between Techstars and Target, aptly called The Techstars Retail Accelerator in partnership with Target.
This verticalized collaboration commenced last fall to “focus on bringing new technology, experiences, products, and solutions to retail,” and is driven by Managing Director Ryan Broshar working with Target’s Entrepreneurs in Residence under Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer Casey Carl.
Captured below are final demos from the first class of startups in the retail accelerator. Notably, Branch Messenger and Inspectorio have committed to staying around in Minneapolis after the fact.
