The Lead bridges the fashion and retail industry with the Global Silicon Valley.

We’ve partnered with industry leaders to produce a quarterly publication, a series of events and to operate an executive network centered on emerging technology, and its adoption, across the fashion-retail-commerce value chain.

Our analysts track the emerging technology companies innovating at the intersection of these two industries. We produce three lists of innovation leaders that the fashion and retail community must know- The Leading 100 | B2B Start-Ups across the value chain, The Foremost 50 | Digital Native Start-Ups reinventing and redefining the industry and The Defiant 25 | Executives innovating to move their businesses forward.

Our community is made up of fashion and retail executives, venture backed start-ups, investors and enterprise technology leaders.

Digital transformation in the fashion-retail-commerce space is a macro trend gaining in velocity. Our work is to reveal what is coming next, and to help our community get ahead of it.
