“What wakes me up every day, is disruption and change,” said John James, founder of Hayseed Ventures in Fayetteville.
In the digital age, e-commerce is more common with consumers and more of a threat to traditional retailers. James tells us that successful e-commerce is a combination of retail, logistics and data. Arkansas is home to major power players in each of those areas including Wal-Mart, Acxiom, Dillard’s and more.
As we look ahead to 2017, James says to pay attention to companies putting large investments into their e-commerce and leading change throughout a time of disruption.
