In episode 4 of The Edge, author and futurist Tom Goodwin visits Stockholm to meet people who are utilizing new technology to reimagine how we shop and pay.
Tom talks with the founder and CEO of Klarna, one of the country’s most valuable startups with a market capitalization of over $40 billion, on how the company is transforming retail by spanning the worlds of fintech, banking, and commerce.
Following that, he meets Lisa Lindvall, the founder of The Fit, an app that scans your physique and then utilizes machine learning technology to help you find clothes that truly fit online.
Although online shopping is definitely the area of retail that is seeing the most transformation right now, did you know that over 80% of shopping is still done in physical stores around the world?
Tom visits Daniel Lundh, the founder of Lifvs, a startup that believes that technology is the key to revitalizing small grocery stores. These remote stores have no employees, are open 24 hours a day, and can be unlocked with your smartphone.
Tom, a writer and lecturer on technology and the changing world, investigates the future of design, art, money, mobility, and more in The Edge, a video series about innovation and the people who make it happen.
