#StartupsOfNRF: Natasia Malaihollo, VP, Business Development, PopCom on Building the PopShop Digital Pop-Up Shop

January 23, 2022

Popcom has developed  what they describe as a robotic storefront platform, called the PopShop Digital Pop-Up Shop. It’s a very sophsicated vending machine that can provide merchandise immediately as well as an e commerce platform. 

This interview is the 11th in the Startups of NRF series.  I’ll ask each of the startups exhibiting in either the Innovation Lab or Startup Zone the same 8 questions listed below.

  1. Can you introduce yourself and tell us about
  2. Your company
  3. The problem you are solving
  4. The “pigeonhole” question:  Where does your solution sit
  5. Where are we in the adoption cycle for this technology?
  6. What is the message you’re sharing at NRF?
  7. How do you see 2022 shaping up

For all the college students out there

  1. What advice can you offer budding entrepreneurs?
  2. What skills that you use now that you wish you paid more attention to?

Give it a listen and let us know what you think?
