“There is no doubt that retail is one of the hottest areas in Israeli high-tech these days,”  said Yael Kochman, a partner and CEO at Re:Tech to Essentialretail. “With the recent acquisitions of Upstreem Commerce, Visualead, Invertex and others by retail giants such as Nike, Alibaba and Myntra, it is clear that while Israel doesn’t have a large retail market of its own, it is definitely able to supply cutting-edge technology to provide retailers with a competitive edge.”

“Israel is amongst the most exciting technology hubs in the world today, and in my role in leading revenue for a $2 billion business I am keen to bring the best tech solutions Israel has on offer to bear on our biggest challenges/opportunities and hence scaling our impact,” explained Mithun Sundar, Myntra’s chief revenue officer, who attended the event.
