WIRED name Swipii as one of the top retail startups to watch


Swipii are delighted to announce that we’ve just been named as one of the top tech retail startups to watch by WIRED.

WIRED is one of the worlds leading publishers, and considered the essential source of information and ideas that explores how technology is changing every aspect of our lives—from culture to business, science and design.

In the lead up to this recognition, Swipii were recently invited down to London to introduce our new card-linking loyalty technology at WIRED Smarter – an event which took place on the 9th October 2018.

WIRED Smarter explores how shopping and customer behaviour is changing, examining where the retail industry is heading in the future.

The event showcased some amazing tech breakthrough ideas in the Retail, Energy and Money sectors, as well as hosting a ‘Start Up’ event for companies like Swipii to demonstrate how we are using the latest advances in tech to create new products that disrupt marketplaces.

And the guest list attending WIRED Smarter was a who’s who from some of the biggest retail and tech brands in the world.
