About Us

FutureProof Retail develops technology that brings the personalization and convenience of eCommerce shopping to physical stores.

FutureProof was founded in 2013 by a group of impatient shoppers, award winning developers and retail technology veterans. We work globally from our base in New York.

Our Intentions:

  • Make something that is customer centric - that's unambiguously good and improves people's day as much as we can.
  • Improve the world by lowering the cost of shopping for both customers and retailers.
  • Work in a sustainable and ethical way.
  • Engage openly with partners and do what we can to foster cooperation in the retail technology ecosystem and community.
  • Avoid putting retailers in a "lock in" situation, whether intentional or due to poor technical choices - we intend to keep pace with the times.
  • Continue improving, never consider what we've made complete.
  • Always be on the side of our merchants and their customers, meaning we don't take kickbacks from payments companies or compromise the service for advertisers.
  • Place people before profits and make sure what we're producing is a net positive for the world.
