What is Iterate?

ITERATE GETS YOU CLOSER TO INNOVATION

innovation-adoption-curve

We Discover New Digital Inventions Around the Globe

We uncover maturing start-ups, then put their technologies and businesses through validity checks to ensure they’re safe for large companies — our Enterprise Lab Members. When we see a likely fit, we bring large companies and start-ups together. Then, we rigorously quantify that fit, providing Perfect Insights for adoption decisions.

The proof-of-concept planning, experimentation, and analysis we do for Enterprise Lab Members ensures our data is based on real-world test results, not on gut feel.

We help Large Enterprise Members (from retail, media, telecom, CPG and even government) extend their reach to discovery and vet emerging technologies, then double, triple or quadruple their volume of experiments. This should double, triple or quadruple success rates. Iterate’s broad Membership base creates high velocity. This means faster testing and faster learnings for all participating executives and entrepreneurs.

If your great team has invented a unique emerging technology — something that will truly move the needle for large retailers or media brands — we want to see it. If your a Large Enterprise, seeking more innovation velocity, we’d like to talk with you too.

Constant Curation

Iterate saves our Retail and Media brand Members precious time. For large companies, we make sense of your sheer volume inbound requests. We cut through the mind-numbing array of options that you are bombarded with daily. Untangling the 1000′s of innovative solutions you could be looking at … methodically presenting the few you should be looking at.

Every start-up claims to deliver a positive business-impact.
So each claim is evaluated — on behalf of all Iterate Members. Funding, team, technology, systems, scalability, reference checks, competitive landscapes — it all interests us.
Findings are catalogued.

More than 9,000 companies classify themselves as e-commerce start-ups. We sort and classify those start-ups. Making curated recommendations.  But also allowing you to access our database on an as-needed basis. Ultimately, we expose the diamonds in the rough — those emerging technologies our Retailers and Media companies should validate or test.

More Experiments

Iterate expands the testing capacity of large companies.
Streamlined process means more experiments. Claims are tested for proof-of-concept. Using real live traffic — from real retail and media participants.

Sharing and Insights

After an experiment, outcomes — or what we call Perfect Insights — are shared with other Large Enterprise Members. Members become smarter, faster, on what’s working and what isn’t, through the shared learning.

Faster

Time-to-testing is fast.
Iterate removes the need for large companies to do ROIs and MSAs before testing.

Iterate also implements the tests, so IT pipelines are not an issue.
