Bryan answers these questions : 

  1. Let's discuss your journey from Yale Law School, courts, to being a lawyer and then starting Ibotta. How did that happen? What advice do you have for others who want to follow in your footsteps?
  2. Take us through the value proposition of Ibotta. What should brands expect from a partnership, and why should they seek it?
  3. Ibotta has significant reach with retail. Take us through your retail partnerships, and the one with Walmart is considered sort of exclusive. Demystify what that could mean.
  4. How does a consumer benefit from the app? Why is it considered the premier loyalty platform for a brand?
  5. The latest version of ios 17 brings with it the end of cookie-based tracking for the most part.  How does this impact Ibotta and your relationship with the consumer? How do you ensure privacy for the consumer?
  6.  Retail media - today’s hottest topic and everywhere at retail. How is Ibotta part of the retail media ecosystem or planning to be engaged in it?
  7. A bit over a year ago, Ibotta launched the Ibotta Performance Network. Can you tell us about that evolution and the factors that culminated in this offering?
  8. Looking ahead, what are the biggest challenges facing the industry? The opportunities?
