PayPal Startup Alley: Disrupting The Retail Space


PayPal’s Startup Alley is a special activation on the show floor that features leading startups in Canada that are disrupting the way people think about retail and technology. Participating startups are hand-selected and invited by PayPal and Dx3 to showcase their business and concepts.

According to BetaKit, the selection of startups reflects a diverse set of disruptions that go beyond payments, reaching into areas like analytics, SaaS, consumer apps, and more. The program, which began at Dx3 2016, has showcased a range of companies including Sampler – the only Canadian startup selected for Unilever’s Foundry50 – LiveGuage, and SmoothPay, to name only a few.

“We’re very excited to be participating in PayPal’s Startup Alley alongside some of Canada’s most innovative and interesting startups,” says Clement Lo, Founder, and CEO of Wantboard. “When we started out, our mission was to make online shopping more accessible for Canadians. We’re curious to see how other startups are disrupting the status quo in retail and tech.”
