I’ve always blogged about cool technologies out there and today I’d like to blog about the launch of my fiancee’s new business – Little Trendsetter. They used some really cool technology to get their business off the ground so quickly, more on that later. Her and her partners have a great eye for fashion and have put together a collection of nice clothing at reasonable prices for moms and dads to buy their little ones. Not everyone cares about how cute their kids looks but I’ve noticed a lot of parents pay a lot of attention to the details of their kid’s clothing so I think they’re onto something.
If I had a kid and after recently watching Man of Steel – I would definitely get him this Superman shirt.
If I had a little girl I can see her showing off in this leopard dress.
Every kid needs this for the summer:
The Tech part: They were able to launch their business within 2 months. Majority of the time was spent on finding the best inventory. They were able to leverage Shopify’s ecommerce platform (SaaS) to quickly bring their business online. They bought a pretty cool theme and did most of the work themselves and I pitched in here and there. I’m very impressed with how easy Shopify makes it. This is the perfect example of using the Cloud or SaaS to bring a business from zero to launch in a very short time. Now all they have to do is drive people to their site to buy stuff :). This is where you come in…hint…hint :)
Anyways, check out the site and help support her business by blogging about it, sharing it on facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. Much love! http://www.littletrendsetter.com
