Tristan Walker: ‘No one wants to fund e-commerce companies anymore’ – Recode

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

When Tristan Walker decided to raise venture capital money for his new startup, a health and beauty company that makes products for people of color, the fact that he was running a tech company — not a retail company — was key. “When I started, I said we’re a tech company. That’s bullshit,” Walker said Monday night at Recode’s Code Commerce conference in Las Vegas. “If you go to any…

E-Commerce: Not As Big As You Think – Seeking Alpha

Monday, March 20, 2017

Heading into 2016, I suggested that it might be the year that Amazon.com (AMZN) lost some momentum while traditional brick and mortar retailers recuperated. That didn’t happen.

Welcome to eCommerce Week – DMN

Monday, March 20, 2017

March 20, 2017 Is it time to bid farewell to the whole concept of eCommerce?  With in-store visits driving mobile purchases, webpages driving traffic to mobile ads, and customers moving easily and even thoughtlessly between physical and digital channels, we seem to be entering an era when all commerce (and all marketing) is — in some respects, anyway — eCommerce (and “e” or digital…

Añora, an Andalusian village of 1,500 founded in the 14th century, is remote and aging, like many other small towns in rural Spain.
