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.

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

Gamification : le jeu plus qu’un divertissement Début 2013, le jeu est toujours un outil très utilisé par les marques pour communiquer, à l’instar des advergames Google Maze ou Adicolor de Adidas. Alors que le jeu vidéo est régulièrement critiqué par les médias traditionnels, rappelons que cette activité est pratiquée par 7 français sur 10, que le joueur moyen a 35 ans et que femmes et hommes jouent autant aux jeux vidéo. Certes la cible principale des studios de jeu vidéo comme Ubisoft ou Activision sont les jeunes hommes de 15 à 25 ans, mais pas pour les studios comme Wooga ou Zynga qui eux ciblent les femmes de plus de 30 ans. Qui sont les joueurs en France ? Continuons de faire la guerre aux préjugés : les jeux de réflexions sont largement plébiscités par les français…largement devant les jeux de combats (seulement 3%). Pas étonnant dans ce cadre de voir un jeu comme Criminal Cases, un jeu d’objets cachés, atteindre les 3 millions de joueurs en seulement quelques semaines ! Les jeux préférés des Français

IDG李丰:服务业O2O成功三要素 - 观点 - i黑马网 i黑马注:在当前这拨服务业O2O创业浪潮中,IDG资本是发力最凶的VC之一,雕爷的河狸家即是IDG资本所投。在IDG资本看来,以解放个体劳动者为标志的C2C(就是大家说的P2P)式O2O公司,将极大提高社会资源的使用效率。 而要从这拨创业浪潮中突围,比拼的是创业者对于线下这门生意本身的理解。 以下为IDG资本合伙人李丰的口述,当然,是简版。 服务业O2O四大特征与三大分类 在过去的三年中,我们经历了发展非常快的移动互联网时代,我们每个人、每天将越来越多的时间,放在手机和移动设备上。 1.以售卖或者出售个人的职业技能,作为服务的方式; 2.需求和供给,关系是多样化的; 3.基于地理位置信息,进行沟通、交流和服务; 4.服务过程,智能硬件是个特征,以快速匹配个性化和个性化之间的需求和供给。 O2O创造了很多新的服务模式,很大程度上已经在改变甚至颠覆了线下的服务方式,以求更能符合大众生活水平提高带来的需求。 另外,在二线、三线的渠道和品牌发展,已经滞后于年轻人对于品牌、渠道和零售业在线下的需求。 在我们集中投资和探讨C2C形态的O2O时,IDG这样分类: 第一种是数字资产的交易,这是流动性最强的个性化需求对个性化供给,所有的东西都是以数字化的形式呈现; 第二种是偏标准化的O2O中的C2C,像PP租车、河狸家,时下最火的打车和美甲软件; 第三种我们称之为“复杂交易”,比如说众包,涉及到IT设计、IT外包、招聘的猎头服务、婚嫁、旅游、教育等等,这些服务交易流程和供需匹配的过程中,涉及到了一种以上的职业技能,或者交易流程比较复杂,且交易时间比较长。 从投资的大逻辑上来讲,用户需求整体提高的比较快,同时解决方案在线下并不合理比如经常让你们不高兴,同时,专业服务的劳动者被剥削得又比较严重的行业,IDG都看好。 重度垂直才是未来 我们看到的大部分成功的O2O模式中,创始人对线下这个行业的理解、熟悉,可能占超过一半的原因。 成功的O2O模式中,还有一个比较重要的因素是,O2O公司怎么设计一个利用互联网和移动互联网作为工具,来达成交易的商业模式。 比如用户在线下消费美甲,第一他得去店里接受服务,那你先要交不少钱(相当于为门店交房租)存款,第二他只能在店里可供选的美甲师中选一个。 服务业O2O的最大驱动力,是因为生活水平和可持续收入的提高,导致我们对服务行业的需求显著提高。 第一件事情,完善基础设施。 第二件事情,改变人的生活模式。
