NEWTOWN, Pa. October 06, 2018
Gracyfy.com has been named a Finalist in the ‘Startup of the year 2018 – Consumer Services’, category in the 15th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run– worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Gracyfy is an on-demand personal styling service, differentiated in a market full of box subscriptions by their highly personalized and complete online solution. At sign-up, the client completes a style quiz and styling plan. She gets a stylist matched and assigned to her. The stylist shops 1000+ brands across the internet and creates personalized style edits as online Look-Books. The client can interactively review the styles and ask for a revision. She can simply concierge the entire look or pieces she liked. Items ship directly from retailers and are delivered right to their doorstep.
Scientific studies on “enclothed cognition” have shown that right-for-us clothing can contribute to our confidence, raise our self-esteem, and help propel us in the workplace and relationships. Hence, starting with fashion – clothing and accessories, Gracyfy’s concierge seeks to help growing numbers of busy working women and moms, and those overwhelmed by online shopping, with a fast, easy and beautiful shopping experience delivered via the convenience of their smart-devices. She could be at her daughter's soccer practice or at an airport, styles are delivered in an easy-view LookBook. No extensive online shopping, or parking at the malls.
The underlying concierge platform is Gracyfy’s vision for shopping experiences of the future, where consumers don't shop marketplaces for commodities. Instead, they seek catered, personalized solutions deliver in a humanized relate-able way.
US retail is a 359 billion $ industry, ripe for disruption through personalized services fueled by advancements in data and cognitive technology. With ‘Client Experiences’ at their front and center, Gracyfy’s concierge seeks to bridge the key gaps left behind by the box subscription offerings: lack of on-demand expert interaction; and product base restricted to in-house brands and stocks.
Starting with styling, this framework has applicability to other lifestyle areas like home and auto. That being their vision, Gracyfy’s concierge has just launched out of beta in Sept 2018 and are pointedly focused on delivering and growing 'The Gracyfy Online Stylist Experience' in the United States.
Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on five juries. Their scores will also determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements that will be revealed at the 15th annual awards dinner and presentations in New York on Friday, November 16. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend. The event will be broadcast on Livestream. More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories.
“In its 15th year, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business received a record number of nominations. With the new Women|Future Conference preceding the announcement of winners on November 16, it will be a day to celebrate the achievements of working women around the world,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “We’re looking forward to recognizing the Stevie Award winners next month.”
Gracyfy’s founder, Yesh Kane Desai, while accepting the nomination on behalf of the team stated “We are thrilled to be nominated as Finalist to the prestigious Stevie Awards in the category of ‘Startup of the year 2018: Consumer Services’. It is a validation of our vision and the ‘Client Experience’ driven approach we have taken.
