Connecting People with Products

In this episode, Fashion Futurist Amanda Cosco interviews Steve Statler, the SVP of Marketing and Business Development at Wiliot. Wiliot is an Israel-based startup that aims to switch on the fashion industry and enable a whole new digital life for apparel, accessories, and footwear. They’re doing this by integrating into products a paper-thin, battery-free Bluetooth chip that harvests energy from radio frequencies in the air. It’s a small and simple solution that has tremendous implications for manufacturing, distribution, retail and beyond. In this episode, Statler will share the many use-cases for Wiliot and share why the young startup has already raised $35 million in funding from companies like Amazon, Samsung, and Qualcomm.
