Hero is a retail tech company that calls itself “the future of omnichannel retail.” It aims to turn traditional retailers into “smart stores” by giving sales associates the ability to connect with online shoppers via real-time messaging, pictures, video, and live streaming. The technology has been adopted by LVMH, Richemont, Harvey Nichols, Ted Baker, John Hardy, and Jonathan Adler.

The company was founded by Adam Levene in 2015. Alistair Crane serves as CEO.
