FASHWELL opens office in New York


B2B image recognition company FASHWELL is already very successful in Europe with customers such as Zalando. The company plans to grow its business in North America with a new sales and business development office.


After successfully establishing their presence in Europe and the U.K., FASHWELL’s move to the U.S. indicates the first step of their international expansion and is fully in line with the company’s long-term growth strategy. Initially the New York office will focus on Sales and Business Development Operations. The office enables FASHWELL to operate in close physical proximity to their local clients and to forge new partnerships within the U.S.

“Opening an office in New York is a natural next step, one that we have been planning for a while,” says FASHWELL CEO Matthias Dantone. “Many of the biggest retailers and brands are based in the U.S. We’re very excited to get closer to our existing customer base and to begin the journey towards new partnerships.”

FASHWELL is a visual search provider for retailers and brands and currently works with clients across the board, including Zalando, the largest apparel retailer in Europe, as well as Nelly, Shop Spring and Olapic. Recently, FASHWELL has joined the VentureLeader Swiss National Startup Team and has been accepted into the innovative New York Fashion Tech Lab.
