Metail - Your Personal Online Fitting Room

Metail - Your Personal Online Fitting Room

Duitse Zalando naar Nederland De Duitse online modewinkel Zalando, twee jaar geleden opgericht in een Berlijnse kelder, heeft een Nederlandse webshop gelanceerd. Net als op de Duitse variant kunnen Nederlandse consumenten schoenen, mode en accessoires bestellen. Twee jaar na de oprichting van Zalando in Duitsland, gaat het bedrijf over de grens naar Nederland. Momenteel wordt de Nederlandse webshop nog gerund vanuit het hoofdkantoor in Berlijn, maar later dit jaar hoopt het bedrijf al een kantoor met Nederlands sprekend personeel te openen in Amsterdam. Oprichter en managing director Robert Gentz laat weten blij te zijn met de uitbreiding. “En we zijn er van overtuigd dat ons assortiment ook in Nederland goed ontvangen zal worden.” De voorwaarden van de Duitse webshop, waarmee de online winkel zich wil onderscheiden van andere bedrijven, zullen ook op de Nederlandse variant van toepassing zijn. Hoewel Zalando begon als schoenenwinkel wil het bedrijf nu een complete outfit, inclusief accessoires, aanbieden.

And for the online fashion industry, it’s a big problem, too. The inability to see if a garment actually fits before making a purchase, not only lowers conversion rates, but is also seeing return rates as high as 70%, an expense that online retailers can ill afford. Arguably, however, no one has landed on the moon, quite yet, and the virtual fitting room market is still wide open. One startup that thinks it’s well-positioned to do so is the UK’s Metail, which launched a partnership with Warehouse (owned by the Aurora Fashions Group) last week, following a successful trial of its virtual fitting room solution with retailer, Tesco. Metail’s purposely been flying under the tech press radar, says CEO and co-founder, Tom Adeyoola, and has effectively been operating in “stealth mode” since it was founded in January 2008. To pull this off, Metail doesn’t rely on CGI.

Marketplace App Carousell Raises $800K Seed Round Led By Rakuten Carousell, a Singapore-based consumer-to-consumer marketplace app for iOS and Android, has raised a $1 million SGD (about $800,000 USD) seed round led by Rakuten. Other investors include Golden Gate Ventures, 500 Startups, Danny Oei Wirianto and Darius Cheung. The startup will use its funding to expand into Indonesia and Malaysia before tackling other Southeast Asian markets. The startup’s founding team, Quek Siu Rui, Marcus Tan Yi Wei and Lucas Ngoo, demoed the first version of the app at Startup Weekend Singapore in March 2012 and began working on it full-time two months later. Rui says the trio wanted to create a marketplace app because they found using classified listing sites and online forums to sell secondhand books, clothing and other small items tedious and time-consuming. Southeast Asia’s mobile penetration rates are already high and still rapidly growing. “We were inspired by Instagram’s ease of use,” says Riu. Carousell’s target users are women between 16 to 34.

Ex-Googler-Founded Shape Security Picks Up Another $40M To Build Out Its “Botwall” For Businesses Shape Security — the enterprise startup that emerged from stealth last month with an enterprise product that fights automated malware and bots by way of a firewall (or ‘botwall’ in its words) that shifts its shape depending on what is trying to scale it — has picked up another $40 million in funding. The Series C round will be used to help the startup continue to develop its technology (which today works through a piece of hardware that a client installs on its premises, but may in the future move further into a virtualised solution in the cloud); and it will also be used to help build up its salesforce globally, now that Shape is openly marketing itself. The round was led by new investors Norwest Venture Partners and Sierra Ventures, with participation from Kleiner Perkins, Venrock, Google Ventures, Eric Schmidt’s TomorrowVentures, and Allegis Capital. It brings the total raised by Shape to $66 million. Image: Flickr
