Here at Regulr we are a group of thinkers looking to bridge technology and human connection into a new era.
Human-centered design should be at the heart of every new technology. Recently, however, we’ve seen technology reduce and remove the human connection. At Regulr, we focus on using technology in a way that promotes human connection, not hinders it. So, we’re revitalizing brick and mortar with a new industry of data to elevate the user experience when shopping.
