The gig world is becoming a mainstream part of the economy, and workers are pursuing specialized jobs in the space. Last month, the all-in-one platform for solo entrepreneurs HoneyBook announced a Series C round. In retail, RADARs inventory technology could significantly shape the store experience. And the vacancy rate of community shopping centers in Q1 was unchanged from Q4 of 2018. All this, Today In Data.
