About Pair Anything

PairAnything is the WOC-led technology company that is harnessing AI to bring consumer inclusivity and data-driven innovation to the world of wine and make its enjoyment more widely accessible. PairAnything seeks to solve a two-sided problem. This is a problem that affects retailers and the customers that they serve. The food and beverage industry, specifically wine retail, fails to market effectively to underserved consumers. Diverse cultures that differ from the model of the wine enthusiast which typically is the more affluent, eurocentric consumer, like younger generations, are often overlooked by the industry. In addition, wine is complex and intimidating to approach for many consumers. With PairAnything, consumer inclusivity and broad access to enjoyment is the struggle we aim to solve. For large retailers, like Target, that desire to engage more shoppers in a personal and ground-breaking way, PairAnything provides an in-store digital companion for wine discovery that delivers unique insights to grow sales.
