Zalando Build: The Fashtech Startups Zalando Is Looking For

Now that Zalando Build is online, (our first analysis of the coming Zalando platform) we can get a better look at what Zalando is looking for in startups to integrate into the Zalando main app:

We are now looking for fashion tech companies, that want to join us in our mission to connect even more people to fashion in ever new and exciting ways. Early-stage startups to large companies to individual contributors are welcome to join us. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: Fashion content, sizing/fitting solutions, style/outfit generation, recommendation systems, and anything that helps connect people to fashion. […]

We are now exploring use cases for the first MVP, please enter you data if you would like to be considered as a beta partner.

This may turn out to be resource intensive for startups but it is also a rare chance to be on a platform not just from day one but also to get one’s own service integrated in a way that makes most sense for oneself.

This may be especially interesting for startups in this case as Zalando plans to integrate third-party services directly into the user flow withouth a more traditional directory/”installation” setup.

Still, once again, the ‘white label’ side of the coin should not be underestimated.

One of the launch partners will most likely be image recoginition startup Fashwell, which gained Zalando as a strategic investor late last year:

Fashwell is a Zurich, Switzerland, based fashion tech startup, specializing in algorithms for image recognition. Fashwell analyzes fashion photos in social media streams and connects them with the shown products.
