Comp App - fashion

 allows users to see a fashion item they like, anywhere on the internet, and find it and similar products within seconds, with just one click.

Comp App - fashion It’s simple: you see pictures of us at a Startacus event and think, ‘I must emulate those Olympians!’; you click the Comb button and drag a box over our tweed jacket, dungarees, flip flops, or whatever we’ve inspired you with; Comb searches 2.5 million products in seconds and gives you the results.

The app allows you to create a profile to save products and make collections in one place. It has plenty of other features too, such as finding other Comp App - fashion similar products, allowing you to follow other people, and get alerts about price drops.

Comb is one of those ongoing success stories we all like to hear about (and then complain that we didn't think of it first).

Co-founders Liam Doolan and Moeez Ali began their startup journey living in a hovel and working out of a shipping container, after Liam convinced Mooez to quit his job in New York and move back to Loughborough to co-found fashtech startup Comb.

The idea that prompted this significant move was to change e-commerce into something personalised, giving shoppers an experience based on their styles and tastes.

Comb App - fashionWhen they moved to London in 2015, things started to pick up. Living the high life of sleeping on friends’ sofas and in a gym out of hours, they began to secure funding: £50k, £75k, £450k. Just over a year of pitching and negotiating brought them over £500k in funding and more than 60,000 users to their app.

With such a simple and effective offering, we think they will continue to make their vision of a completely personalised shopping experience an App you cannot afford to ignore - and we look forward to seeing how their App and its popularity continues to grow throughout the rest of 2017.
