Unifai, elected "Coup de Coeur" start-up at Connect Lille


Last trophy of the season!

The best Retail Tech start-ups of the year were rewarded during the Connect Lille event, organised by Diamart. The event brought together key players in the retail industry for a day of exchange on the latest trends in retail and the impacts of its digital transformation. Leading speakers, such as La Redoute, Zalando, Respire and Monoprix, were able to give their testimonies and expertise on the needs of tomorrow's retail. 

For this event, more than 400 participants were present, including the most influential business leaders in their sector and the most innovative technological players, such as Michel-Edouard Leclerc, Chairman of Leclerc, Philippe Berlan, DGA of La Redoute, Laure Le Gall, VP sales Strategy & Operations of Mirakl, Jean-François Gomez, Industry Executive of Microsoft. 

After being voted "E-commerce start-up of the year" by FEVAD and KPMG in September, then "E-commerce & marketplace start-up 2021" at the LSA Retail Tech in November, Unifai had the honour of being voted "Coup de cœur" start-up at Connect Lille. With its artificial intelligence platform designed for marketplaces, e-retailers and distributors, it automatically standardises, enriches and categorises their product catalogues to halve their time-to-market.

Unifai responds to a clearly identified irritant: 80% of the time of data professionals is wasted cleaning data.
