A new podcast is live — “Spotlight Series: A Candid Debate with b8ta CEO and Co-Founder Vibhu Norby”
Chris Walton sits down one-on-one with b8ta CEO Vibhu Norby to discuss the history and business model of b8ta, “Retail-as-a-Service” theory and practice, and his company’s new partnership involving Toys R Us.
The conversation is frank, spirited, and left the Omni Talk team with even more unanswered questions about the long-term value of what we have seen so far from b8ta’s first footnotes on the chart of retail history.
Be careful out there.
