The future of Retail: Serdar Nurmammedov – Founder, Beam

PRESENTATIONROUND TABLE DISCUSSION

PRESENTATION

The future of retail holds opportunities far greater than all of Amazon’s achievements to date. Convergence of information, communication and finance technologies will redefine the retail landscape. However, these opportunities also create challenges for retailers, some of which are already struggling to stay relevant. What are the biggest risks for retailers and what should they do, to not only survive this new future, but flourish in it?

ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION

What does the future of retail look like? And more importantly, how do we get there?

Join an interactive round table discussion where everyone gets to have their say. Hosted by Serdar Nurmammedov, Founder of Beam Wallet who proposes the following:

Let’s imagine… the world of retail has become optimally efficient: 

  • Every customer owns their own database
  • Customer data is accessible to the entire retail ecosystem with permission access from customers
  • Retail businesses truly understand the needs and wants of their customers
  • Retailers access the data by providing customers with value

Let’s imagine…Tech and payment giants no longer monopolise the retail ecosystem:

Today tech giants have built big businesses by owning our data and selling it to the highest bidder. To better understand their customers, retailers must pay to access data from tech and payment companies. Yet despite tech and payment giants holding the most data, no one has a complete picture of their customer and no one is willing to share their fragmented database to get ahead. There is no incentive to change as payment businesses like Visa and Mastercard have a monopoly. Can we change this?

Blockchain technology is supporting a paradigm change in retail, creating:

  • More opportunities for collaboration between retail brands
  • Improved efficiencies in the retail ecosystem
  • Increased value in the retail economy
  • Improved customer experiences that are tailored to each customer
  • Better ways for businesses and customers to engage each other.

So how do we make this a reality?

  • Retail: what are the internal structures needed to advance innovation
  • Retail ecosystem: how to work together to make changes.

More about Serdar…

Serdar was that annoying kid at school that always asked why. It brought him more joy to pull apart toys to find out how they worked rather than play with them. He was born in Turkmenistan when it was a part of the Soviet Union, and has always been fascinated by the concept of money.

He’s gone from waiting in long queues for his rationed portion of flour, meat and sugar to living in Sydney, Australia where supermarkets shelves magically replenish each night with options beyond comprehension. The multiple perspectives of living in four countries has fueled his vision for Beam.

Partnering with Shezan Amiji in 2013, they launched Beam in the UAE. Five years later, the company has processed $250 million to become the most popular wallet app in the region. After 750k users and 4 million transactions, they are embarking on the next chapter of Beam.
