#BackFromCES
Hard to find one big trend coming back from CES as it really explores all the categories of products. But this year, alongside the perennial favorite topics—drones, the promise of 5G, VR and AR, connected cars and homes, and vast, bendable, 360-degree 8K TV screens—health tech remains a burgeoning segment, one that now encompasses everything from personalized nutrition, scents, beauty, maternity, infant care, pet health, mental health, fitness and more. 
My 3 personal take aways :
  • every hardware piece is now AI enabled
  • IoT is everywhere
  • Brainwaves really blown my mind, in every way

#BackFromNewYork
Store as a Community
NRF is always packed with American and European retail execs trying to find the new trend of commerce, or the new tool that will enable them to transform their business.
Meanwhile, some are really changing the game while betting all on building strong communities. “L'intendance suivra” as used to say the General de Gaulle !
One key example : live the experience of shopping at Winky Lux in Soho : more than half of the store is dedicated to 7 rooms with 7 differents decorations so that you can take selfies and share them on instagram.
That way, the customer lives an experience totally related to the brand and helps growing the community, therefore customer engagement quite easily.
Be true and you can ditch all the “loyalty” programs supposed to grow a community.

#BackFromIndia
Our hottest thoughts and feelings after 7 amazing days in Incredible India !
The main goal was to understand the retail and e-commerce landscape in India, especially Delhi and Mumbai, the start up and innovation ecosystem but also, be able to touch the 3rd route that this amazing continent can teach to people who are mindful enough. Probably one of the best business and emotional experience it can offer to anybody…
First Take Away : India is the 2nd worldwide Start Up ecosystem
India has changed a lot for the last few years and enables now amazing tech companies to emerge rapidly. More and more Unicorn to be expected there…
Beyond Flipkart, Paytm and Ola (The Indian Uber), some young unicorn are emerging like MakeMyTrip (the Indian Expedia), Zomato (like la Fourchette), Swiggy (food delivery)…
Why?
1- Smartphones got cheaper and India has become the world’s cheapest data network. 4G revolution has already happened and India has become the leader worldwide regarding consumption of data. Digital payment are emerging faster and faster
2- Government policy shift to enable faster and stronger help to startup
3- India is still in early stage of massive growth powered by an emerging middle class that boost drastically the interior consumption
4- 64 % of Indian population is less than 35 years old   
Second Take Away : pollution
India is facing a huge challenge regarding Pollution (especially air pollution). The group was very shocked by the air pollution in Delhi especially. Mumbai was not as bad because of the Seaside location.
Can we find / develop businesses in India that can enable the Indian population to breathe better / to live better on a less polluted environment?
Third Take Away : Speed and rythme
Opportunities look like to be everywhere. What matter is to be able to embrace it at the right moment to be one of the first movers. Not easy looking at the speed on how things are moving!
