  • 4. Overview What XRC Labs is an ”Innovation Accelerator” investing to drive rapid innovation in the retail and consumer goods Industries, leveraging emerging technologies regardless of startup size. Why XRC Labs focuses its investments on challenges and opportunities specific to retail and consumer goods companies, insuring that these important industries and their related ecosystems stay current with, and benefit from, innovation with emerging technologies. How Similar to other accelerator models, XRC will invest in entrepreneurs and startup companies to help them accelerate the development of their ideas/solutions. Unlike other accelerators, XRC is stage-agnostic. Startups often have to be much larger than seed- stage companies to work with most retailers. A governance body made up of member companies will select the themes and participants, and operationalize the innovation experience. Who XRC Labs will play four main roles: 1. Entrepreneurs will receive capital investment and resources in exchange for equity 2. Founding Sponsors will invest capital and other resources in exchange for equity 3. Equity Partners will invest capital in exchange for equity 4. Member Sponsors will invest capital and other resources to operationalize XRC in exchange for access and participation When XRC Labs plans to conduct two ten week sessions annually. The initial session is scheduled to launch October 13, 2015. The operational startup and request for proposals will begin in July 2015. Innovation workspace will be in NYC. 02
