SpreeConf Session – E-Commerce is a Bear – Andy Dunn

As one of our keynote speakers at SpreeConf 2014, Andy Dunn, CEO and Founder of Bonobos, outlined the strategic thinking required not just to launch in a competitive e-commerce environment, but how to differentiate and win, using the great success of Bonobos as an example.


Andy discussed in depth how difficult e-commerce can be, pointing out that, in the United States, only two standalone e-commerce companies have resulted in meaningful enterprise value: Amazon and eBay. Yet, experts are predicting that e-commerce will swallow the world of retail. How can that be? Watch Andy’s insightful session on how e-commerce truly is a bear, and learn how some companies are figuring out to how to avoid being eaten by the bear.

Partner Ninefold Visits the Spree Office

Partner Ninefold Visits the Spree Office

This week our team from our partner, Ninefold, made the very long trek from Australia and San Francisco to visit our headquarters in the Washington DC area. The week long visit included hosting our very first partner webinar, paired with a lot of brainstorming with both our development team and our marketing group, as well as an introduction to our favorite lunch spot – Chipotle.

The partnership started when Ninefold shared some incredible research they had done on site load time using Spree Commerce as the basis. That quickly developed into a popular session at SpreeConf 2014 and evolved into a fast partnership that will, and has, included a webinar series, documentation and events.

We appreciate Ninefold taking the time to spend the week here at Spree. We continue to be impressed with their team, and we always enjoy working with our partners to identify ways that we can work more closely together. We look forward to a lot of great collaborations in the future.
