business news in context, analysis with attitude

The goal of "The Innovation Conversation" is to explore some facet of the fast-changing, technology-driven retail landscape and how it affects businesses and consumers. It is, we think, fertile territory ... and one that Tom Furphy - a former Amazon executive, the originator of Amazon Fresh, and currently CEO and Managing Director of Consumer Equity Partners (CEP), a venture capital and venture development firm in Seattle, WA, that works with many top retailers and manufacturers - is uniquely positioned to address.

Tom Furphy & Kevin Coupe debrief each other about last week's "De-Invest to Re-Invest" Leadership Summit, looking at lessons learned as well as applying those lessons to one of the nation's best retailers - Wegmans.

Note:  Participants in last week's "De-Invest to Reinvest" Leadership Summit have received an email instructing them how to replay the conference's various segments.  In the next few weeks, segments from the conference will be available to people unable to attend, and download information will be made available on MNB.  Stay tuned.
