Canada Startup Newsletter – 12 May
Another Canada-wide edition of our startup newsletter has just been published. This edition profiles three more Canadian startups who are delivering top class tech products.
Those within the retail industry have been particularly hard hit by the fallout associated with COVID-19. So, we thought we would showcase three startups who are developing platforms which help retailers acquire customers, understand the in-store performance of their products, and, ultimately, boost sales. Needless to say these are features which all retailers would make great use of, especially in the current climate as stores look to reopen and recoup some the business they have lost over the last few months.
The three companies we feature are:
Shelfgram grants brands and retailers new insights to drive new growth. The platform provides increased in-store visibility and a suite of competitive intelligence tools to better understand how products look, perform, and compete on the shelf. With Shelfgram, teams can find actionable shopper insights, monitor in-store promotions, and spot retail trends before they become trends.
ILUK is an app to find and book last-minute appointments at the most sought after and trusted salons and barbershops of Montreal and Toronto. All salons are hand-picked and vetted for the outstanding quality of their services and the products they use.
FanSaves is a mobile app that gives users discounts and deals from the sponsors and affiliated brands of their favourite sports teams, organizations, schools, Chambers of Commerce, events, influencers, media and more. Their platform helps organizations increase their sponsorship, engagement and gives both organizations and sponsors a way to track Return on Investment while collecting customer analytics in a more effective way than traditional sponsorship options.
