In 2015, four executives turned entrepreneurs after decades of experiences in consumer goods industry. They set out to solve the offline data gap they experienced in their days with the main mission to leverage technology to help brands grow. They were frustrated with the delay in data gatherings and how little they knew about their shoppers beyond the existing survey-based data and estimates. While on the other side of the retail spectrum, the tech-based companies and online retail players have all the access to a large bank of users’ data that the offline counterparts can only dream of. Therefore, it is in that particular gap that these three founders saw the opportunity to fill in by joining forces and create Snapcart. And in September 2015, Snapcart was born.
