Milan, 3rd November, 2016: ELSE Corp, a Virtual Retail platform & service provider, is elated to announce that they are amongst the 5 startup finalists that have been shortlisted to pitch on stage at the fourth edition of The Fashion Pitch!- RE-DESIGNING THE FASHION CHAIN at Decoded Fashion Milan 2016. The finalists come from all over the world and ELSE Corp is the only start up that has been selected from Italy. This year’s competition for international start-ups in the tech-fashion field has a unique challenge: powering the Fashion Chain forward.
ELSE Corp is an Italian B2B startup based in Milan, founded in 2014. The company has been working on designing and developing a technologically advanced Cloud SaaS API platform for Virtual Retail or no stock retail. It is aimed at providing an extraordinary Customer & Shopping Experience that supports Mass Customization and Cloud Manufacturing by integrating all their components and processes into brands’ and retailers’ e-commerce, CRM, ERP and PLM systems; from 3D Design and Interactive Visual Merchandising for customized and MTM sales, to on demand production.
The brief for the competition called for “a solution that is ready to bring the industry to the next level, with a particular focus on product development, production and the commercial phase of both textile and fashion collections”. The start-ups that have been selected are expected to “bring ideas that broaden the range of research and production possibilities, opening new options to further both fashion creativity and sales engagement. These solutions will also optimise mentioned processes, proposing ways to reduce time-to-market, error margins, material wastage, and costs in general.”
Having ticked all the boxes, ELSE Corp has been shortlisted and is now in the training phase of the contest: The Startup Initiative Boot Camp powered by Intesa Sanpaolo. The winner will be awarded full access into a special Mentorship Programme by Gruppo Miroglio. In addition to valuable consulting insight and support, this could also include the eventual implementation of the startup’s solution within the Gruppo Miroglio.
